Millenarianism, 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; these movements believe in radical changes to society after a major cataclysm or transformative event and are not linked to millennialist movements in Christianity and Zoroastrianism. Millenarianist movements can be religious in nature; the terms "millenarianism" and "millennialism" are sometimes used interchangeably, but this usage is incorrect. As Stephen Jay Gould notes: Millennium is from the Latin mille, "one thousand," and annus, "year"—hence the two n's. Millenarian is from the Latin millenarius, "containing a thousand," hence no annus, only one "n"; the application of an apocalyptic timetable to the establishment or changing of the world has happened in many cultures and religions, continues to this day, is not relegated to the sects of major world religions.

In the study of apocalyptic new religious movements, millenarianism is used to refer to a more cataclysmic and destructive arrival of a utopian period as compared to millennialism, used to denote a more peaceful arrival and is more associated with a one thousand year utopia. Millennialism is a specific type of Christian millenarianism, is sometimes referred to as "chiliasm" from the New Testament use of the Greek chilia, it is part of the broader form of apocalyptic expectation. A core doctrine in some variations of Christian eschatology is the expectation that the Second Coming is near and that there will be an establishment of a Kingdom of God on Earth. According to an interpretation of prophecies in the Book of Revelation, this Kingdom of God on Earth will last a thousand years or more. Many if not most millenarian groups claim that the current society and its rulers are corrupt, unjust, or otherwise wrong, that they will soon be destroyed by a powerful force; the harmful nature of the status quo is considered intractable without the anticipated dramatic change.

Henri Desroche observed that millenarian movements envisioned three periods in which change might occur. First, the elect members of the movement will be oppressed, leading to the second period in which the movement resists the oppression; the third period brings about a new utopian age. In the modern world, economic rules, perceived immorality or vast conspiracies are seen as generating oppression. Only dramatic events are seen as able to change the world and the change is anticipated to be brought about, or survived, by a group of the devout and dedicated. In most millenarian scenarios, the disaster or battle to come will be followed by a new, purified world in which the believers will be rewarded. While many millennial groups are pacifistic, millenarian beliefs have been claimed as causes for people to ignore conventional rules of behavior, which can result in violence directed inwards or outwards, it sometimes includes a belief in predetermined victory. In some cases, millenarians withdraw from society to await the intervention of God.

This is known as world-rejection. Millenarian ideologies or religious sects sometimes appear in oppressed peoples, with examples such as the 19th-century Ghost Dance movement among Native Americans, early Mormons, the 19th and 20th-century cargo cults among isolated Pacific Islanders; the Catechism of the Catholic Church follows a discussion of the church's ultimate trial: The Antichrist's deception begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgement. The Church has rejected modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism the'intrinsically perverse' political form of a secular messianism. There have been examples of millenarian groups and writings over the years. While each is different, not all of these adhere to a strict millennial pattern, they do ascribe to patterns of wide-scale change as described above: Amillennialism Center for Millennial Studies Faith in Buddhism#Millenarianism Fifteen Signs before Doomsday Millenarianism in colonial societies Postmillennialism Premillennialism Taki Unquy Timeline of the far future Millennial Sites, Center for Millennial Studies at Boston University.
