In this volume, leading scholars examine the ideas of the last days of the world held in Islam, Christianity and Judaism in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Age. They discuss the mutual influence of these ideas together with their intended and actual political effect at the time. They open up a significant source for political and intellectual history, because apocalyptic writings are always to be found among the powerful.
