I believe it is Rome. However, the bride of the anti-christ, and the Papal church, which is (the woman) are separate. When the anti-christ takes power, he will destroy the RCC and strip "the woman: of her power, and wealth. Revelation 17 verse 16.
In researching origins, of the RCC, its noted that after Damascus was made "supreme Pontiff, the "rites" of Babylon came into practice, and the worship of "The Virgin Mary" which was set up in A.D.381
The babylonian gods became RCC festivals. Example:easter is not Christian, but is instead means "Ishtar" one of the titles of "The Queen of heaven".
The observance of Easter, and Lent came about in A.D.519.
The "Rosary" is rooted in paganism.
Celibacy, or Tonsure, and the Order of the Monks and Nuns is no less the imitation of "The Vestal Virgins" of Pagan Rome.
The Pope gets his dress code from "The Woman" which is "purple and scarlet" along with gold and precious stones.
Remember? She sits on the "scarlet beast". Revelation Chapter 17 verse 4.
The information is extensive and involves study of not only Revelation, but Daniel as well, but is fascinatingly informative.
The RCC is, and has always been "self-shrouded in mystery to fool its followers..
The "Mystery of Baptismal Regeneration", the "Miracle of Magic" where a symbolic memorial of "The Lords Suppet" is magically transformed into Christ's literal blood, and flesh, or the mystery of the "Holy Water, or the mystery of "Lights on the Altar", ect. Ect. Ect.
