    Eschatology

    Hi,
    I am looking for a word that refers to the other world after this world. I mean "the world after death". I could only find "Eschatology" but what I need is the name of that world. What do you call it (if you have encountered such a word)?

    Thank you so much.
    Please correct my mistakes if you encounter any.

    Re: Eschatology

    Those who believe in such a world or state call it variously

    heaven, paradise, nirvana, utopia, reincarnation, reward, the afterlife, the next world, the promised land, the rapture, the hereafter etc, but never eschatology.

    Re: Eschatology

    The generic term is afterlife. Other terms apply to specific belief systems.

    We could add life after death to Rover's list.

    Re: Eschatology

    For me, "the afterlife" differs from "life after death". The former refers to a mythical place where the spirits of the dead go. The latter refers to a sort of reincarnation where someone who has died comes back as a live being again (animal or human).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Eschatology

    The afterlife may not include reincarnation, but life after death, for me, could be heaven or reincarnation.

    Re: Eschatology

    In Christianity, life after death is eternal life in heaven but not reincarnation.
