Firstly, thank you for clearly demonstrating the problems I alluded to in terms of imposing a narrow exegesis (or perhaps eisegesis) on the apocalyptic texts. Vicarivs Filii Dei-5-1-100-1-5-1-50-1-1-500-1 is first mentioned in the fraudulent document - The Donation of Constantine - and it is very difficult to ascribe any credibility when it is based on a fraudulent document. You assert as fact that the woman is to be equated with the Roman Catholic Church. This assertion seems to have no foundation in scripture or scholarship. The Roman Catholic Church as a particular entity probably has no intelligible meaning prior to July 16, 1054. This would seem to be some 900 years after the writing of the book of Revelation, so cannot be asserted as being the intent of the writing. Vatican City has no hills, Rome of course is described as the city of seven hills. ... Now I am an Anglican, and I am not a Roman Catholic, and I am not an Anglo-Papist, and I am not an Anglo-Catholic. I achieve nothing for the Kingdom of God by engaging in this sort of pseudo-exegesis of this very narrow specific genre (apocalyptic) texts. Quite simply, this is not the way Anglicans in the main understand these texts.
