Abstract Apocalyptic studies are nowadays a prominent field of enquiry within biblical studies. Yet, scholars have not been able to agree upon a definition of the term apocalyptic. The following study attempts to move this debate foreword by acknowledging the term as a modern scientific designation that scholars apply to historical sources and thus requires a definition based upon its use in modern scholarship. Since the use of the term has become a modus operandi in biblical and modern studies, an analysis of the various applications of the term by modern scholars provides the point of departure for a reflection upon its definition by means of a comparative study.
