Patterns of Apocalyptic Thought: 2012 and other prophecies

A critical view of apocalyptic thought drawing on world renowned experts from four disciplines.

Apocalyptic thought has a long history in the West dating back to the prophets of the Old Testament. It is also prominent in the New Testament - it is clear that Jesus and his followers expected the world to end in their lifetime. Since then, there have been repeated patterns of this kind, including those leading up to the year 1000 and the recent millennium. In the Indian tradition, this thinking is represented by the transition from the Kali Yuga to a new Golden Age, a theme which is also represented in the West and parallels the process of death and rebirth. Among the latest manifestations of apocalyptic thought are prophecies that the world will come to an end in December 2012.
