The Oxford English Dictionary of 1933 does not note the word "apocalypticism," but the Supplement to the Oxford English Dictionary ( 1972) cites both "apocalyptic" and "apocalypticism," the latter defined as: "An apocalyptic doctrine of belief, esp. one based on an expectation of the imminent end of the present world order."

G. Ahlström, "Prophecy", The Encyclopaedia Britannica. Macropaedia 15 ( Chicago, 1976), p. 62.
11.
Prophetism, both in the Old Testament and in its various Christian revivals, at least, tends to be an affair of preaching--the prophet speaks his message to an audience, though it may be written down at a later date.
