Different Types of Millennialism (2011)

Length: 16min 05sec

In his research on Millennialism, Richard Landes distinguishes between active and passive sabbatical millennialism in Christian traditions. With Erik Niblaeus, he further discusses the competitive late antique and early medieval concepts of this tradition. As an example of active, bottom-up Millennialism, the historian explains the Peace-of-God movement.
