Abstract

The conclusion summarizes the arguments presented elsewhere in the volume. It suggests that the significance of the evidence concerning optimistic apocalyptic expectations within Lutheran confessional culture in early modernity can also inform analyses of apocalyptic expectations in other confessional culture, such as Calvinism, as well as narratives of progress and modernity at the core of western civilisation.
