Acerca de


This book offers a fascinating exploration of the concept of the apocalypse in early medieval Europe. Calling upon a wealth of archival evidence ranging from the late antiquity to the first millennium, it surveys the role of religious ideas and apocalyptic thought in shaping medieval society in Western Europe.


'This is an exceptional book. Palmer offers a synthesis where none currently exists, moving the study of apocalypticism away from modern historiographical polemic and into a space that helps us understand the Early Middle Ages as a whole.' Matthew Gabriele, Virginia Tech

'The topic is complicated and controversial; the author is learned, wide-ranging and open-minded. This combination has yielded a book that is both accessible and important.' Mayke De Jong, Universiteit Utrecht, The Netherlands

'James Palmer's excellent new look at the idea of the imminent end of the world shows both how normal it was for most of the early middle ages and how it interleaved transactionally with political action. Anyone interested in the early middle ages, or in the interplay between theology and politics in any period, should read this book.' Chris Wickham, University of Oxford

'It has been said that only two things are necessary in life: paying taxes and dying. ... Palmer has made a significant contribution to our understanding of early medieval Europe and the emergence of Christendom, one that should be seriously considered by all medievalists. ... For scholars, the early Middle Ages will never look the same. For this, we owe Palmer our gratitude.' Eric Leland Saak, Augustiniana
