Description: The end of the millennium has always held the world in fear ofearthquakes, plague, and the catastrophic destruction of the world. At the dawnof the 21st millennium the world is still experiencing these anxieties, as seenby the onslaught of fantasies of renewal, doomsday predictions, and New Ageprophecies.This fascinating book explores the millenarianism that flourished inwestern Europe between the eleventh and sixteenth centuries. Covering the fullrange of revolutionary and anarchic sects and movements in medieval Europe, Cohndemonstrates how prophecies of a final struggle between the hosts of Christ andAntichrist melded with the rootless poor's desire to improve their own materialconditions, resulting in a flourishing of millenarian fantasies. The onlyoverall study of medieval millenarian movements, The Pursuit of the Millenniumoffers an excellent interpretation of how, again and again, in situations ofanxiety and unrest, traditional beliefs come to serve as vehicles for socialaspirations and animosities.
