Overview

The Father of the Church Victorinus has written a commentary on the Apocalypse, which has some interesting things to add on many of the verses of the Apocalypse. This work when taken along side 'The Book of Destiny' by Kramer, 'The Apocalypse of Saint John' by Berry, 'The Apocalypse of St. John by Ratton, who also wrote 'Essays on the Apocalypse.' Victorinus says: “Two great wings” are the two prophets- Elias, and the prophet who shall be with him. “And the serpent cast our of his mouth after the woman water as a flood, that he might carry her away with the flood.” He signifies by the water which the serpent cast out of his mouth, the people who at his command would persecute her. “And the earth helped the woman, and opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.” That the earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the waters, sets forth the vengeance for present troubles. Although, therefore, It may signify this woman bringing forth, it shows her afterwards flying when her offspring is brought forth, because both things did not happen at one time; for we know that Christ was born, but that the time should arrive that she should flee from the face of the serpent: (we do not know) that this has happened as yet.”
