The Spring semester is drawing to a close, graduating seniors' stay at WCU is drawing to a close.....what better time to commemorate the ultimate "drawing to a close":
Armageddon and the End of the World!
...and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying,
COME AND SEE
In the display cases by the 2nd floor elevators, you will find a colorful collection of library materials on the End Times of religious prophecy, as well as a case devoted to one potential manifestation of the battle of Armageddon -- global nuclear war.
If you'd like to download any of the images in the End Times display case to have for yourself (who knows, maybe you'd like a tattoo of the Four Horsemen), you can find them all on ARTstor. The library also has a ton of writings by mystic visionaries who had their own interpretations of the Apocalypse, available online in the library catalog (do a keyword search for "eschatology" ; this document is pretty cool).
And if the display case on the right makes you wonder what you would do in a nuclear attack, or if it puts you in the mood to check out some post-nuclear-apocalyptic fiction, movies, or videogames, be sure to visit our Nuclear Disaster Preparedness libguide!
