Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Die vergleichend-systematische Erschließung ausgewählter millenaristischer Vorstellungswelten in Geschichte und Gegenwart ist Gegenstand dieser Lehrveranstaltung. Der religionswissenschaftliche Millenarismusbegriff verweist auf die Vorstellung eines bevorstehenden soteriologischen Wandels der gegenwärtigen Weltordnung. Der Millenarismus fungiert vielfach als zentraler Impulsgeber bzw. Rahmenwerk soteriologischer Systeme. Vor der Folie millenarismustheoretischer Reflexionen werden Millenarismusentwürfe unterschiedlicher religiöser Traditionen diskutiert.
