Description
 
Bernard McGinn (au). Traces the concept of Antichrist from its Judeo-Christian origins to the present day, alerting us to the potential for violence that often accompanies literal belief in an ultimate human evildoer. The idea of Antichrist was formulated from a combination of myth, history, & legend. Demonstrates how Antichrist has always served the human need to understand the persistence of evil in the world. Explores the evolution of the Antichrist legend over the centuries. Examines how it has haunted popular imagination in both the form of individuals -- such as Nero, Napoleon, & Saddam Hussein -- & groups -- Jews, heretics, Muslims -- that are perceived as grave social threats.
