And the six ages came and went....[edit]

So, how did they take it when the first millennium came and went with no Judgment Day or End Times or anything?

Among adherents of some modern fundamentalist/evangelical Christian movements, there has been a resurgence in this belief that Judgement Day is liable to come RSN; some fundamentalist Christians have claimed, as their ancient predecessors had done, that the End of Days would occur in a particular year. As far as I know, even though these years have come and gone with no Judgment Day, End Times, etc., the would-be prophets do not seem to be ruffled or even embarrassed by the failure of their predictions. I wonder if this was also the case among the many Medieval people who revered Augustine as a saint and one of the most important church fathers (not to mention the church itself, which owed much of its theology to him).
