THE END OF THE WORLD

RELIGION 361

Traces end-time arguments, predictions, and prophecies from the second-century BCE until the present day. Why are prophecies of doom so compelling? Why must time come to a stop? What happens after the world s end? Who decides? Close study of the role of apocalyptic eschatology in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam across time and place provides a lens for interpreting more recent apocalyptic movements, texts, claims, and artistic productions.
