Adventists

адвентисты
Протестантская церковь, действующая главным образом в США, возникла в 30 гг. XIX в. Проповедует близость второго пришествия [imminent advent] Христа и наступления на Земле "тысячелетнего царства Божия" [Millennium]. Основоположник секты У. Миллер [Miller, William] провозгласил, что конец света наступит в 1843. Иногда адвентистов называют миллеритами [Millerites]. Несмотря на то, что прогноз его не сбылся, число различных сект адвентистов в стране быстро росло. Наиболее крупная секта - Адвентисты седьмого дня [Seventh-Day Adventists] основана в 1863. Адвентисты основали множество миссионерских организаций. (От лат adventus - пришествие)
