Resource: Critical Dictionary of Apocalyptic and Millenarian Movements

Two of my spring class—Religion in the United States and The Christian Scriptures—deal a lot with apocalyptic and millenarian ideologies: John the Baptist, Jesus of Nazareth, Paul of Tarsus, John the Seer, broader Jewish apocalyptic thought and literature, the Latter-day Saints, the Adventists, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Pentecostals, Scientologists, The Peoples Temple, the Branch Davidians, Heaven’s Gate. Now there’s a new(er) “independent, scholarly, open-access” resource with entries I can assign for reading when we cover those topics: Critical Dictionary of Apocalyptic and Millenarian Movements. In the list above, those that are linked already have articles on the topic but there’s more and it seems to be evolving.
