An apocalypse (Ancient Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apokálypsis, from ἀπό and καλύπτω, literally meaning "an uncovering") is a disclosure or revelation of knowledge. In religious and occult concepts an apocalypse usually discloses something hidden, or provides what Bart Ehrman has termed "a vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities".

The biblical Book of Revelation depicts as an "apocalypse" the complete and final destruction of the world.
