REL 57.01 The End of the World

This course will examine expectations of the end of the world with roots in the interpretation of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament. Students will survey ancient near eastern concepts of the cataclysmic end of history, understand the theological and social origins of apocalyptic literature, and examine the primary examples of the genre in early Judaism and Christianity. The course will also investigate modern apocalyptic movements guided by eschatological interpretations of the Bible.



Degree Requirement Attributes


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
