Encyclopedia of millennialism and millennial movements by R. W Landes( Book )

14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All of the major world religions, with the exception of Hinduism, began as millennial movements. They have been a common form of social protest and a mechanism for seeking societal change. The Encyclopedia of Millennialism and Millennial Movements is a guide to the religious or spiritual social movements throughout history and around the world that have promised to create a better world or usher in a new one. Millennialism is not simply a fringe activity - it is a critically important aspect of the human experience, past and present." "The Encyclopedia of Millennialism and Millennial Movements is historical, cross-cultural, and interdisciplinary, covering movements in Western society and also in Africa, Asia, Oceania, and among native North and South Americans, drawing upon the work of religious scholars, anthropologists, historians, political scientists, and others who study millennial movements. In addition to descriptions of specific movements like Aum Shinrikyo, Christian Identity, Heaven's Gate, the John Frum Movement, Nazism, Solar Temple, and Ufology, there are articles about the concepts and theories that guide the scholarly study of millenarianism like cults, societal stress, and utopia, and articles on general topics such as charismatic leadership, the role of women, and religious conversions."--Jacket

Heaven on earth : the varieties of the millennial experience by Richard Landes( Book )

15 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Millennialists through the ages have looked forward to the apocalyptic moment that will radically transform society into heaven on earth. They have delivered withering critiques of their own civilizations and promised both the impending annihilation of the forces of evil and the advent of a perfect society. And all their promises have invariably failed. We tend, therefore, to dismiss these prophets of doom and salvation as crackpots and madmen, and not surprisingly historians of our secular era have tended to underestimate their impact on our modern world. Now, Richard Landes offers a lucid and ground-breaking analysis of this widely misunderstood phenomenon. This long-awaited study shows that many events typically regarded as secular--including the French Revolution, Marxism, Bolshevism, Nazism-not only contain key millennialist elements, but follow the apocalyptic curve of enthusiastic launch, disappointment and (often catastrophic) re-entry into "normal time." Indeed, as Landes examines the explicit millennialism behind such recent events as the emergence of Global Jihad since 1979, he challenges the common notion that modern history is largely driven by secular interests. By focusing on ten widely different case studies, none of which come from Judaism or Christianity, he shows that millennialism is not only a cultural universal, but also an extremely adaptive social phenomenon that persists across the modern and post-modern divides. At the same time, he also offers valuable insight into the social and psychological factors that drive such beliefs. Ranging from ancient Egypt to modern-day UFO cults and global Jihad, Heaven on Earth both delivers an eye-opening revisionist argument for the significance of millennialism throughout history and alerts the reader to the alarming spread of these ideologies in our world today."--Publisher's description
Relics, apocalypse, and the deceits of history : Ademar of Chabannes, 989-1034 by Richard Landes( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unusual biographical work traces the life and career of Ademar of Chabannes, a monk, historian, liturgist, and hagiographer who lived at the turn of the first Christian millennium. Thanks to the unique collection of over one thousand folios of autograph manuscript that Ademar left behind, Richard Landes has been able to reconstruct in great detail the development of Ademar's career and the events of his day, and to suggest several major revisions in the general picture held by current medieval historiography

The human rights discourse and Israel: beyond victimhood and underdogs by Richard Landes( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

ABSTRACT: Ron Dudai ('Entryism, mimicry and victimhood work: the adoption of human rights discourse by right-wing groups in Israel') makes the argument that 'right-wing' groups imitate, seek to be included in, and to exploit human rights discourse in order to pursue a 'right-wing' agenda. The ostensible objective of this effort is to hijack the movement from within, defend Israel and undermine the Palestinian struggle for human rights. The choice and reliability of evidence and the argument are highly problematic, in two core dimensions. First, the reification of the 'right–left' dichotomy in the context of debates regarding human rights, with repeated references to 'right-wing' without independent, consistent and verifiable definitions or criteria. Second, according to the paradigm, those who are not sufficiently progressive cannot possibly care about human rights, and are acting on the basis of imputed motivations. Thus, these Israeli civil society organisations are falsely categorised as 'government-aligned groups masquerading as independent civil society actors' 'state marionettes' or 'phantom organizations'
