Originally published in German in 1988, "The Apocalypse in Germany" is translated here into English. A fitting subject for the dawn of the new millennium, the apocalypse has intrigued humanity for the last 2000 years, serving as both a fascinating vision of redemption and a profound threat. A cross-disciplinary study, "The Apocalypse in Germany" analyzes fundamental aspects of the apocalypse as a religious, political and aesthetic phenomenon. Author Klaus Vondung draws from religious, philosophical and political texts, as well as works of art and literature.
