The influence of millenarian thinking upon Cromwell's England is well-known.

Messianism and Millenarianism Messianism and millenarianism are defined here as forms of millennialism in which human agency, magical or revolutionary, is central to achieving the Millennium.
Messianic movements focus on a particular leader or movement, while millenarian movements, such as many of the peasant uprisings of. Millenarianism (also millenarism), from Latin mīllēnārius "containing a thousand", is the belief by a religious, social, or political group or movement in a coming fundamental transformation of society, after which "all things will be changed".
Millenarianism exists in various cultures and religions worldwide, with various interpretations of what constitutes a transformation. This article deals with the temporal framework of Hindu religion, which consists of four yugas—Satya, Treta, Dwapar, and Kali.

Myth - Myth - Messianic and millenarian myths: The hope of a new world surges up from time to time in many civilizations. Many such religious movements have flourished in the 20th century in Melanesia, Africa, South America, and Siberia.
Christian elements are usually detectable, but the basic element in virtually all cases is indigenous. These cults and movements centre on prophetic leaders. The natural and the supernatural are mingled in this conception of a Messianic kingdom as the closing act of the world’s history.
The Jewish hopes of a Messiah, and the descriptions of apocalyptic writers were blended; it was between the close of the present world-order and the commencement of the new that this sublime kingdom of the chosen people was to find its place.
