General Eschatology

 This book is an introductory study of the relationships among three ideas: millennialism, God’s sanctions in history, and social theory. Everyone knows what sanctions are: rewards and punishments. But prior to about 1950, comparatively few secular scholars would have known what millennialism is, let alone how central it has been to the thinking of various late medieval sects and Protestant Christianity since the end of the sixteenth century,9 especially American Protestant evangelicals in the twentieth century. (One group that immediately acknowledged and praised this early European connection was the Communist movement.)10 Slowly but surely, humanist scholars have begun to understand millennialism’s importance. They have begun to document the fact that there have been significant relationships in Western history between millennial speculation and social change.11 They are far more aware of these historical events than most Christians are. (pp.15-16)
 本書は3つの考え、即ち千年期説、歴史における神の制裁、そして社会理論の間の関係に関する概説的研究である。誰でも制裁が何であるかは知っている。即ち報酬と罰である。……徐々に、しかし確実に人間中心主義的な学者は千年期説の重要性を理解し始めた。彼らは、西洋史において千年期の推測と社会の変化の間には重要な関係があったという事実を文書化し始めた。彼らはこれらの歴史上の出来事について大部分のキリスト者よりも遥かに気付いている。
