Religion: Book Series

Apocalypse and the Global Middle Ages

The central focus of this interdisciplinary series is the consideration of apocalypticism as a cultural force in the global pre-1500 world. Too often apocalyptic expectation has focused within a more traditional ‘intellectual history’ frame, detached from wider considerations of contemporary politics, culture and religious practice. This series challenges us to think of how cultures and societies – often in conversation with one another - dealt with ideas of divine revelation, and reflects cutting edge research considering communities beyond Latin Christianity and beyond Europe. The series fosters interdisciplinary approaches, and publishes monographs and edited volumes combining the best elements of religious and cultural history, literary analysis, social history, and intellectual history.
