Apokalypsis Ioannou (Revelation)
by John of Patmos

The Revelation or Apocalypse of John is a book in the Christian Bible. The book spans three literary genres: the epistolary, the apocalyptic, and the prophetic. It begins with John, on the island of Patmos in the Aegean, addressing a letter to the "Seven Churches of Asia". He then describes a series of prophetic visions, including figures such as the Whore of Babylon and the Beast, culminating in the Second Coming of Jesus.

English-language translations of Apokalypsis Ioannou include:
An Orthodox icon of the Apocalypse of St. John, 16th century.
