The Book of Daniel is a 2nd-century BCE biblical apocalypse combining a prophecy of history with an eschatology (a portrayal of end times) cosmic in scope and political in focus.

The Sibyls Oraculum is not a fortune-telling tool. It is a cartomantic method of divination designed to facilitate self-examination and decision making to improve the likelihood of success in all undertakings.

How the Oracle Works Using The Sibyls Oraculum to facilitate self-examination and decision-making is accomplished in a three-step. Sibyl, also called Sibylla, prophetess in Greek legend and literature. Tradition represented her as a woman of prodigious old age uttering predictions in ecstatic frenzy, but she was always a figure of the mythical past, and her prophecies, in Greek hexameters, were handed down in writing.

In the 5th and early 4th centuries bc, she was always referred to in the singular; Sibylla was treated as. In antiquity a considerable number of books of prophecies went under the general title of "Sibylline Oracles". One of the characteristics of Sibyls was that they composed discursive verses for distribution to the world at large.

Verses are a didactic poem taken from pseudo-Phocylides, and the passage beginning with verse is, on the whole, a Jewish eschatology mingled with Stoic conceptions.

Very little is known about the original Sibylline books. The original Sibylline books were closely-guarded oracular scrolls written by prophetic priestesses (the Sibylls) in the Etruscan and early Roman Era as far back as the 6th Century B.C.E. These books were destroyed, partially in a fire in 83 B.C.E., and finally burned by order of the Roman General Flavius Stilicho ( C.E.).

Sibylline Oracles, collection of oracular prophecies in which Jewish or Christian doctrines were allegedly confirmed by a sibyl (legendary Greek prophetess); the prophecies were actually the work of certain Jewish and Christian writers from about bc to about ad and are not to be confused with the Sibylline Books, a much earlier collection of sibylline prophecies (see Sibyl).Whatever their number, the Sibyls most often came to be referred to by the places they inhabited.
