Abstract

It is the purpose of this paper to briefly survey some historical perspectives on millenniumism—the obsession with the change of the millennium and end-of-the-world thinking—particularly in the years leading up to A.D. 1000, and to make some observations about some evidence of speculative milleniumism in the Seventh-day Adventist Church today.
