This book seeks to capture the apocalyptic expectation in the 16th century German-speaking Europe, especially as articulated by the groups and individuals collectively called the Radical Reformation. Attention is paid also to Luther and his fellow-reformers to show that apocalyptic expectation was not limited to the socially disadvantaged strata of society.

This book is interesting, ...entertaining...--Donald Opitz, LUTHERAN QUARTERLY "Mennonite Quarterly Review "
