Joseph Mede (1586-1639) was an English scholar educated at Christ's College, Cambridge, where he became a Fellow from 1613. He is now remembered as a biblical scholar. His Clavis Apocalyptica (1627 in Latin, English translation 1643, Key of the Revelation Searched and Demonstrated) was a widely influential work on the interpretation of the Book of Revelation. It projected the end of the world by 1716: possibly in 1654. The book also posited that the Jews would be miraculously converted to Christianity before the second coming. His collected Works were published in 1665, edited by John Worthington.; Among Mede's pupils at Christ's was Henry More. John Milton studied at Christ's in Mede's time, and is considered to have been influenced by his ideas; but scholars have not found evidence that he was a pupil [wikipedia];. Dupont.
