THESES & DISSERTATIONS

Brown, Andrew Dylan Klassen. “Peace in the End Times: Apocalyptic Expectation and Sixteenth-Century Anabaptist Peace Theology.” Master of Arts (Theological Studies). Canadian Mennonite University, Winnipeg, Manitoba, 2021. Advisor: Karl Koop.

Abstract. This study challenges the prevailing assumption in Anabaptist historical theology that sixteenth-century Anabaptist apocalyptic expectation was necessarily violent. Historical theologians of sixteenth-century Anabaptism have tended to distance the origins of Anabaptism from apocalypticism, given its close association with radicalism and violence, to keep the tradition and its peace witness free from the stains of Münster, Hans Hut, Thomas Müntzer, and other violent extremists closely associated with Anabaptist apocalypticism. While this desire is understandable, it has led Anabaptist historiography to largely avoid exploring apocalypticism beyond its violent expressions in the Anabaptist tradition. This study explores the connections between apocalyptic thought and nonresistance in sixteenth-century Anabaptism, arguing that apocalyptic thinking in Anabaptism could also lead to a nonresistant position, as in the cases of Clemens Adler and Menno Simons.
