Peoples of the Apocalypse

Eschatological Beliefs and Political Scenarios

Edited by: Wolfram Brandes, Felicitas Schmieder and Rebekka Voß
This volume addresses Jewish, Christian and Muslim future visions on the end of the world, focusing on the respective allies and antagonists for each religious society. Extensive lists of murderous end-time peoples, whether for good or evil, and those who merit salvation hold variably defined roles in end-time scenarios. Spanning late Antiquity to the early modern period, the collected papers examine distinctive aspects represented by each religion’s approach as well as shared concepts.
