Jewish and Christian apocalypses have captivated theologians,
writers, artists, and the general public for centuries, and have
had a profound influence on world history from their initial
production by persecuted Jews during the second century BCE, to the
birth of Christianity - through the demise of the Western Roman
Empire and the medieval period, and continuing into modernity. Far
from being an outlier concern, or an academic one that may be
relegated to the dustbin of history, apocalyptic thinking is
ubiquitous and continues to inform nearly all aspects of modern-day
life. It addresses universal human concerns: the search for
identity and belonging, speculation about the future, and (for
some) a blueprint that provides meaning and structure to a
seemingly chaotic world. The Cambridge Companion to Apocalyptic
Literature brings together a field of leading experts to provide a
comprehensive overview of the subject.
