The Beast

 "Such are the fulfillments of history, which identify the power designated by the remarkable symbol introduced in Revelation 13. It is seen first to be a symbol of Rome; and then, by its character and work, to designate Rome in its Papal form, —that great spiritual kingdom which was to rule over men with greater power and authority than pagan Rome had known. And this is the power—the “beast”—after which the world wonders, and against which the warning is given."
