Millenarianism

Discipline: Political Science

Theory of apocalyptic transformation based on prophecy contained in Revelations.

Millenarian theories share an expectation of some transforming change: either the coming of the Kingdom of God, or the just society, or harmony amongst peoples.

They differ in almost every other respect.
