l can remember reading where the story of End Days and Rapture and all the cool stuff Christians are waiting for - wasn’t actually written about - until the middle ages, when some cleric, perhaps after some moldy Rye bread - wrote it all down…
was it God’s hand . . . or could it have been Ergot doing the talking?

OK the ergot is pure fanciful speculation on my part, although seems to me the dude had to have been on something pretty powerful.
But, the other part about the origins of the ginned up End of Days interpretation being created in the middle ages - that I’m not making up. However, I’m having a hard time finding something solid on it, and don’t have much free time so I’m seeking a little help.
Can anyone out there help me with some info?
