Red, White, and Brimstone: New World Literature and the Millennium

Originally created as a traditional exhibit in 1999 by the University of Virginia Library in collaboration with Religious Studies scholar Trent Pomplun, UVA's Online Library Environment team built this online version of the exhibit in 2013. Here, visitors can explore the historic role of the Bible's Book of Revelations via numerous interesting primary documents. Organized chronologically into twelve different topics, this exhibit explores how the Book of Revelations influenced how white settlers viewed Native Americans (The Lost Tribes of Israel); the text's influence on Thomas Jefferson (Thomas Jefferson's Apocalyptic Influences); and William Miller's prediction of the Second Coming (The Second Coming 1843). Each section is accompanied by images, newspaper articles, pamphlets and books.
