    The messianic messages and visionary hopes for a new Jerusalem of the self-styled prophet Richard Brothers (1757-1824) are central to the religious politics and culture of the 1790s. This first full-length study probes into his apparently idiosyncratic writings and 'enthusiasm', reveals the power and internal logic of his theology and shows that his 'prophetic imagination' arose from the same rich theological, political and cultural context that inspired radicals and artists such as Tom Paine and William Blake.
