The Whore of Babylon or Babylon the great is a Christian allegorical figure of evil mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible.Many Bible scholars agree that Babylon is an allegory of Rome; perhaps specifically at the time to some aspect of Rome's rule , or even a servant people that does the bidding of Rome. The Roman Catholic commentary of the Jerusalem Bible, the evangelical Protestant commentary of the New International Version Study Bible, the Rastafarians and the Protestant commentary of the Oxford Annotated Study Bible all concur that Babylon is the symbolic name for Rome and that Rome was the type of place where evil is supreme
