25 Jan 1997

Archive page for Revelation mailing list created (21 Jan 1997). It is still empty, however.
Added to the imperial cult page.
Decided to follow another convention concerning the new icon (). The new entry and modifications will only be date (i.e. not time) stamped the date when actually uploaded to Revelation Resources, and the date will be stamped here. That way, it is easier to find new entries, because no other dates than those shown here are present. That is: you have visited this page, e.g., 21 Jan 1997. Now, suppose you return the 13 Feb 1997 and you find entries here from 27 Jan and 7 Feb 1997. You can see which pages are modified as usual here. Now, load these pages and use your browsers "Find"-button to search for 27 Jan 1997 and 7 Feb 1997 respectively, and you have found each and every change and modification to the page. At the same time, I have decided not to use the new icon here. Only on the TOC-page will it be used, and it will disappear within 4 weeks. This should make it easy for new comers to the index-page to find new topics on Revelation Resources. Any pages created before 21 Jan 1997 miss this icon.
I am currently adding a URL-minder to the system, but I have to do some testing before release.

20 Jan 1997

Added references to Revelation and the problem of genre, Revelation and the OT, modified description of Trebilco on the Asia Minor page, added to the page about the imperial cult.

20 Jan 1997

Added references to some commentaries and introductions.

17 Jan 1997

Moved Revelation Resources to SunSITE located at the Campus of the University of Aalborg in Denmark Modified the pages concerning Revelation mailing list initiated 17 Jan 1997 which was operated by SunSite at the campus of the University of Aalborg, but now by Yahoogroups. I am very happy that SunSITE has accepted to host the Revelation Resources website and the Revelation mailing list. Remember to modify your bookmark(s).

12 Jan 1997

Added references to Revelation and OT.
Added references to Commentaries.
Added a Danish page for both scholars and non-scholars with Scandinavian language literature only. This page is actually in both Danish and English, don't ask me why!
Added a reference on The Genre of Revelation page

The mailing list is now running which caused some changes in the pages concerning the Revelation mailing list.
Added guestbook links to all pages.

Added guestbook form to allow visitors to leave an entry in my guestbook.

6 Jan 1997

Added form to apply for subscription to the pre-release Revelation mailing list.

31 Dec 1996 and 1 Jan 1997

Added some navigational "buttons" and cleaned up the appearance of the web-pages. No references have been added.

30 Dec 1996

A number of changes have been implemented. Changes and additions are time stamped. The pages have been prepared for registering at various search Engines. Descriptions of the purpose of the pages have been added on a lot of the pages. Until "official" release, use of the "new"-icons will be suspended. After that I'll use them, especially because I have registered Xpire Plus 3.0b, an excellent program which can remove such images automatically. I still consider adding a New-section at the top of the pages with a copy of the new entries.

22 Dec 1996

Some more resources added. Please, note, that the date of the most recent revision is printed at the main page (/index.html), and that changes on the other pages are indicated in the parentheses right after the link. On the individual resource pages, all entries are added in alphabetical order, regardless whether they are additions or changes. To keep track of these changes/additions, I repeat the new entries at the top of each page in chronological order. These entries are date and time stamped, and will be removed after about 6 - 8 weeks. So if you return within every 4 -6, chances are that you will not loose anything. I don't know, yet, how often the pages will be updated, but I guess that -- after a while -- I will settle for a period of about 3-4 weeks, perhaps more often if I have something exciting new peaces to display.

21 Dec 1996

First uploaded test pages with only a few resource information added. Overall design ready.

Oct - Nov 1996

Made the first attempts to design the structure of the pages and of the site.
