Developing from a Ministry of Science and Technology-sponsored project to build a collection of books in the National Cheng Kung University Library centered on the theme of Disease, Disaster, and the Apocalyptic Imagination, these essays showcase the scholarship that has emerged from the acquisition of those texts. One goal of the project is to address the multifarious manifestations of the apocalyptic imagination and their historical, social, cultural, and political significances for civilization from the High Middle Ages to the present time. Another goal is to explore the means by which humans confront the disruptions of violence, disability, illness, aging, catastrophe, and social upheaval. The ten articles collected in this book engage with the ongoing scholarly discourse concerning the human response to disease, disaster, and mortality.
