REL 381 Apocalypticism in the Ancient World (3 credits)

A study of apocalypticism as a social and historical phenomenon, primarily through analysis of its expression in ancient Jewish and early Christian apocalyptic texts. In addition to the biblical books of Daniel and Revelation, readings may include works such as the Potter’s Oracle, 1 Enoch, Sibylline Oracles, 2 Baruch, and 4 Ezra. The emphasis will be on the meaning of the texts in their ancient historical context and on the sociology of apocalyptic and millenarian movements in general.
