Much has been written about millennialism in the U.S. and its European roots. But although it is widely recognized that millennialism is also endemic to Latin America, until now there has been no systematic study of this phenomenon as it has flourished in that part of the world. Graziano here offers the first such study, examining Latin American millennialism from its Iberian and indigenous antecedents to present social, revolutionary, religious, and political movements.
