Flashback Beasts, Plagues and The End-Time
December 9, 2010
VIEW: A clip from our report, Apocalypse! It first aired on the eve of a new millennium - December 1999. This time of year, as the calendar's about to turn, the Web site traffic spikes. And why not? Our culture lately has been bombarded by visions of the apocalypse in films, books and tv.
But nothing tops what can be found here in The Book of Revelation, written nearly two thousand years ago.
It's the last book of The New Testament, the mysterious one which brings the Bible to its close, and its images and ideas have shaped our world.
The Web site offers a pictorial chronology of the apocalyptic world view through the ages; a section on the antichrist; and a look at the evolution of apocalyptic ideology -- from Jesus and John the Baptist to Martin Luther and the Crusades, from Nazism and Marxism to the Puritans and Doomsday cults.
