About CenSAMM

The Critical Dictionary of Apocalyptic and Millenarian Movements (CDAMM) is supported by the Centre for the Critical Study of Apocalyptic and Millenarian Movements (CenSAMM). CenSAMM was established to promote high quality critical and academic research into apocalyptic and millenarian movements across time, place and culture.

An important function of the Centre is promoting public understanding of the issues surrounding the study of apocalyptic and millenarian movements, and the nature and history of those movements in themselves.

In addition to CDAMM, core activities of CenSAMM include conferences, symposia, dissemination of research, support for events and scholars, and other projects that promote the purposes of the Centre. As a non-religious and non-partisan organisation, the Centre seeks to promote academic rigour and critical inquiry with an inclusive and interdisciplinary scope.

We are always interested to hear from students, and emerging and established scholars with an interest in apocalyptic and millenarian studies; we can be contacted via

The Centre is supported by the Panacea Charitable Trust.
