Modern Babylon (Rev. 17:5) is the Roman Catholic Church

Where did the practices and beliefs of Roman Catholicism come from? In this scholarly classic, first published over eighty years ago, Alexander Hislop reveals that many Roman Catholic teachings did not originate with Christ or the Bible, but were adopted from ancient pagan Babylonian religion, and given Christian names.

Although difficult reading, this book accurately provides a fascinating historical in-depth examination of the shocking similarities between the practices of ancient Babylonian religion and those of today's Roman Catholic church.

See how a religion that was started by Nimrod and his wife spread to various regions, taking on different names, but keeping the same pagan rituals and trappings. These same rituals embody the Catholic church of today.

About Author

Alexander Hislop

(1807 - 1865) was a Free Church of Scotland minister known for his research and writings on the connection of the Roman Catholic rituals and idols to many ancient pagan origins.

Most of his life was served in the ministry and church school teaching. Not much is known of his personal life except he appears to be a typical local leader in the Reformation movement protesting against the false church in Rome. His writings show a typical depth and detail of the early 19th century scholars. Their thoroughness has given them a long life in the reference libraries of the Christian West. His most famous work, The Two Babylons, has long been used by Protestants seeking to demonstrate the unbiblical teachings of the popes.
