Eschatology Resources

This page is a work in progress.  It contains a list of resources that may be of assistance while researching the historicist point of view.  Please note that these resources are listed for educational/research purposes only.  Inclusion of a resource on this list in no way indicates a necessary endorsement of any or all of the resource’s contents or opinions.  Not all of these resources are from a historic Protestant point of view (, Presents of God, etc.).


“Since then your serene Majesty and your Lordships seek a simple answer, I will give it in this manner, neither horned nor toothed. Unless I am convinced by the testimony of the Scriptures or by clear reason (for I do not trust either in the pope or in councils alone, since it is well known that they have often erred and contradicted themselves), I am bound by the Scriptures I have quoted and my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything, since it is neither safe nor right to go against conscience. May God help me. Amen.”
(Reply to the Diet of Worms, April 18, 1521)
