Description

The fifteenth century was an era of rampant apocalyptic speculation: from papal schism to Muslim invasion to efforts at ecumenical reconciliation, many events were taken as signs of the End Times, and many earlier apocalyptic schemes revised to fit current situations. Nicholas of Cusa wrote a brief tract, The Conjecture on the Last Days, in which he strove to read contemporary history through the narrative of Christ’s life on earth. This session explores Cusanus’ eschatology and its relationship to Thomas à Kempis. This panel is dedicated to Louis B. Pascoe, S.J., our friend and colleague in Church history who died April 27, 2015.
