Title: Catastrophe and the Millennium: A New View of Louis Riel
Published: Regina: University of Regina, 1974.
Notes: Flanagan's article is an examination of the facts concerning Riel's mental condition and a discussion of how the historic psychiatric interpretation of Riel has reduced his prophetic religious activities to individual pathology. He also compares and contrasts the typical pattern of millenarian movements with the Resistance of 1885.
