Abstract Shi'i Mahdism, beliefs on the end of time, and overview of the rise of the Babi Faith.
Notes Full article comprises pages 230-254; included below are pages 237-246. The first 7 pages are devoted to modern neo-Sufi messianic movements in Africa — Tijaniyya, Sanusiyya, etc. — and the Sudanese Mahdi.
