Description: In this engrossing book, the author of the classic work The Pursuit of the Millennium investigates the origins of apocalyptic faith--the belief in a perfect future, when the forces of good are victorious over the forces of evil. Norman Cohn takes us back two thousand years to the world views of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, & India, the innovations of Iranian & Jewish prophets & sages, & the earliest Christian imaginings of heaven on earth, & he illuminates a major turning point in the history of human consciousness. For this second edition, the final chapter on Zoroastrians, Jews, & Christians has been wholly rewritten & extended.
