Apocalypse and Reform from Late Antiquity to the Middle Ages

Details

Apocalypse and Reform provides a range of perspectives on what reformist apocalypticism meant for the formation of Medieval Europe, from the Fall of Rome to the Twelfth-Century. This book challenges accepted narratives about both the development of apocalyptic thought and the way it intersected with cultures of reform to influence the major transformations in the medieval world. This book consolidates a paradigm shift, away from seeing apocalypse as a radical force for a suppressed minority, and towards a fuller understanding of apocalypse as a mainstream cultural force in history and sets out points for further comparative study of apocalypse across time and space.
