This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of existing academic theories of millenarianism, some of which reflect, and may even help shape, popular misconceptions of apocalyptic believers. It is argued that the most important factor distinguishing extreme from moderate millenarianism is the imminence of the End, not its violent character. An overview of the chapters included in this volume is presented.

Keywords:   millenarianism, End, apocalypse, belief, experience
