Astrology, Orthodoxy and the Word of God in Early Modern Sweden
To anyone able to interpret the signs, ancient prophecies seemed to be standing on the brink of fulfilment. In November 1587 a strange fish, marked with obscure characters and figures had been caught in the sea off the Norwegian coast. Miraculous visions of arrned hasts, fighting in the skies were seen by thousands of people while blood fell as rain from the heavens. Monstrous births occurred among beasts and men, and eclipses and sundogs appeared as harbingers of coming calamities. Burning comets lit the night sky, and in their wake followed religious disruption, war, famine and pestilence, as the horsemen of the Apocalypse rode through the world, scourging an unrepentant humanity.
