The settlers called it Harmonie, and there they patiently awaited the Second Coming of the Lord

Millenarian sects flourished in the nineteenth century, particularly in the United States, attracted by the vastness . Both of these strands are prominent in Visions of Harmony: A Study in Nineteenth-Century Millenarianism. Anne Taylor’s delightful book is narrative history at its best.

Millenarian sects flourished in the nineteenth century, particularly in the United States, attracted by the vastness of the land and the relatively high degree of religious toleration. Some of these groups were millenarian in the strict sense of the term-that is, their way of life was based on biblical prophecy, however idiosyncratically interpreted. Others, such as the Fourierist phalansteries, were guided by freethinkers hostile to Christianity-for the most part deists or pantheists; explicit atheism was rare.

Millenarianism (also millenarism), 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"  .

This book tells the tale of a small town on the Wabash River that became the site of more than one attempt to bring about the millennium. In 1814 George Rapp, a religious leader from Wurttemberg, transferred a thousand of his followers to an uncleared site in a dense forest. The settlers called it Harmonie, and there they patiently awaited the Second Coming of the Lord. Ten years later Harmonie was sold to Robert Owen of New Lanark, who started to erect one of his Villages of Unity and Mutual Co-operation with the goal of bringing about the New Moral World. As attractive as New Harmony was to many, isolation, lack of foresight, and Owen's personal peculiarities eventually led to its collapse; but the curious story of the settlement is now preserved, offering unusual insight into religious fundamentalism, millenarian experimentalists, and 19th-century American history.
