The Disappointed: Millerism and Millenarianism in the Nineteenth Century

Front Cover
Ronald L. Numbers, Jonathan M. Butler
Univ. of Tennessee Press, 1993 - History - 249 pages
The first edition (now out of print) grew out of a conference held in Vermont, May-June 1984; the second includes minor changes and one important new document. The subject is the thinking and influence of William Miller whose prediction of the second coming of Christ and the end of the world "about the year 1843" fostered several new religious movements, including Seventh-day Adventists.
