A.D. 1000: Living on the Brink of Apocalypse

Richard Erdoes
Drawing implicit parallels to our own troubled times, noted author Richard Erdoes re-creates the Christian world on the threshold of the first millennium, ravaged from without and within by forces of evil, facing the dawning of a new epoch and a frighteningly uncertain future. It is an era filled with apocalyptic visions of mass destruction and world war, in which the carpe diem philosophy has risen to new heights. People do as they please, defying divine and human laws and living only for instant gratification. Carnage, famine, cannibalism, pestilence, murder, corruption and madness reign supreme. As rich as any fantasy, this chilling historical account provides a distant mirror to our own troubled times.
