The End of the World.... and other subject headings
Many of the NYPL's worldly readers may know that the end of the world concept, or eschatology (Dewey call number 236), has its own heading in the Catalog for readers who want to browse books, ebooks, and DVDs on the subject.
The Oxford English Dictionary, available at the NYPL's Articles & Databases page has a gloriously detailed definition that is an education in itself, as is the Library Catalog's indexing of over 20 other related headings, including:
- Buddhist eschatology.
- Death--Religious aspects.
- End of the world.
- Future life.
- Hindu eschatology.
- Intermediate state.
- Islamic eschatology.
- Kingdom of God.
- Millennium (Eschatology)
- Particular judgment (Theology)
- Rapture (Christian eschatology)
- Realized eschatology.
- Second Advent.
All of which goes to show... it's never too late to learn at NYPL!
