Apocalypses: Prophecies, Cults & Millennial Beliefs Throughout the Ages
Eugen Weber (au). Redresses the historical & religious amnesia that has consigned the study of apocalyptic & millennial thought to the lunatic fringe. An absolute belief in the end time, when good would do final battle with evil, was omnipresent until the 17th century, & retains many adherents even now. Apocalyptic visions & prophecies inspired crusades, scientific discoveries, works of art, voyages such as those of Columbus, rebellions & reforms; the British & North American abolitionists who put an end to the slave trade were driven by a belief in a final reckoning. Elegant & witty, this is more a travel book of the apocalypse than a definitive academic treatment. Offers a sympathetic review of creeds we ignore at our peril.
