Abstract : The author attemps to bring out the chief characteristics of the teaching of the Jehovah' Witnesses, as set out in the numerous periodicals, tracts and books which they propagate. The following features are worth noticing : eschatology, millenarism, utopia, elitism, proselytism, and radicalism. An examination of these doctrinal features forms the content of a descriptive chapter of a thesis devoted to the Jehovah's Witnesses. The thesis contributes to an understanding of the position of this minority religious group amongst other groups of the sect type. Its aim is to give guidance in the analysis of their social behavior in certain areas. Direct quotation from text by witnesses themselves bulks as large as possible, so that the reader can sample for himself writings otherwises little known.
