Book Description

1 Oct 1998 0826410871 978-0826410870
Apocalypticism, broadly defined as the belief that God has revealed the imminent end of the ongoing struggle between good and evil throughout history, has been a major element in the three monotheistic Western religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Over the past 30 years, extensive scholarship has been devoted to the study of apocalypticism over the succeeding 20 centuries. The contemporary role of apocalyptic thought, both in America and in the world at large, has also been a subject of intense research. This reference work provides a survey of apocalypticism's role in Western history, from its origins down to the eve of the third millennium.
