Many people expected the world to end in the year 1000. The Heavenly City of Jerusalem, described in great detail in the Bible, would rise up and become heaven's earthly kingdom. The essays in this book, the first volume in the Millennium Matters series, explore the contrast between this heavenly architecture and the Romanesque architecture of the period.
