The theme of the book is the nature and perception of time in millennial movements, the ways in which these groups confront inevitable disappointment and then return to "normal" time.

The volume consists of revised essays based on presentations made at an international conference devoted to the theme. Authors adopt a number of disciplinary approaches to the topic, analyzing millennial movements from the three Abrahamic faiths, as well as from the East.

The goal of this work is to contribute to the theory of millennialism, by supplying specific data and theoretical reflection that can enhance each other.
