Summary
Millennial movements do not always go boom and bust. As innovative responses to worlds in crisis or projections of possibilities for a world in the doldrums, millennialism has been a prime mover for many an artistic and scientific vision of the world reconfigured. Flourishing well beyond the life of any prophet, bearing fruit well beyond the waning of any redemptive scheme, these visions merit a history of their own. The End that Does tracks the interplay of the arts, the sciences, and millennial imagination across 3000 years of surprising conclusions
