eschatological

Is this word used only to refer to the last four things? Has anyone used it or seen it used in a broader sense?

I never heard it refer to four things. It always refers simply to last things, which can be either the very final things at the end or the "the end times. " The term for final things is the "eschaton." The discussion of eschatology is highly controversial and can vary from fundamentalist Christians to climate warmers to those fearing nuclear destruction.

The four final things: Death, judgment, heaven, hell. But I appreciate that the word is more fluid in usage. Thank you, Perry.
