Product Description

Time of the End, The: Millenarian Beliefs in Ulster  looks at the particular way in which Ulster society has been affected by millennial ideas. Though not exclusive to Protestantism, it was this branch of the Christian faith that first tied the end of the century to apocalyptic warnings and prophecies of the Second Coming. Myrtle Hill takes us through what is sometimes dismissed as a '€˜lunatic fringe'€™ to reveal instead vibrant 18th and 19th century world views.
