Online materials on apocalyptic and millenarian movements are available across the web but rarely gathered together as an overarching theme. To address this, the Centre for the Critical Study of Apocalyptic and Millenarian Movements (CenSAMM) have collected a series of freely available online resources that can be accessed from one place.
The collection includes numerous videos and podcasts for the critical study of apocalyptic and millenarian movements—from Christian origins to contemporary culture—are freely available within this collection. The focus is, largely, Christian (or Christian related) but cenSAMM aim to develop further areas of interest in due course.
The collection includes invaluable material from the archives of INFORM (Information Network Focus on Religious Movements) about modern millenarian movements on its website. The Panacea Charitable Trust and CenSAMM are grateful to INFORM for making this available to a wider audience.
The collection also includes open-access materials relating to the critical study of apocalyptic and millenarian movements, with particular reference to Christian-related topics (for now). While the definitions of "apocalyptic" and "millenarian" are broadly understood, the material collected here is more narrowly assumed to be related to the academic study (historical, sociological, psychological, phenomenological, etc) of such movements. These resources have been categorized chronologically and thematically for convenience largely based on material that is freely available. However, as some movements and themes do not fit neatly into such classifications, you may find that you have to check other categories to find what you are looking for. The categories (incorporating subcategories) are:
- General themes and topics
- 20th Century, Contemporary
- Biblical, Early Christian, Early Jewish
- Reformation, Early Modern, C19
