This chapter considers how the foretaste of eternity was interpreted by two musician authors of the early and mid-eighteenth century, Christoph Raupach and Johann Mattheson. Raupach, little known today, wrote about music as an expression of theological principles. Johann Mattheson published Raupach’s only known treatise in 1717. Mattheson himself produced many writings that treat the subject of music and theology, many of them little known. In several of Mattheson’s treatises the foretaste of eternity figures very prominently.

Keywords:   Christoph Raupach, music as foretaste of eternity, Johann Mattheson, eschatology and music
