The Book of Revelations

The Book of Revelations, it has been said, is impossible to know outside of the Liturgy, and it is certainly spiritually dangerous to try to read to deeply into it, especially if one has been a long time distant from Holy Communion.

History

Generally attributed to Saint John the Theologian, one of the Twelve Apostles, and written as he was exiled in Patmos towards the end of his life. The book itself has been one of the many to drift in and out of the Bible, and it certainly is controvesal, heterodox opinion itself not always certain that it actually is prophecy, or even refering to the end of the world, and the Last Judgement.
