Well I believe you mean "REVELATION" not plural.

The "woman" who's name in scripture is a Mystery to some but is "Babylon the Great", and is in fact, all the apostate churches (cults) and is the bride of the anti-christ.

This was first mentioned in scripture by Paul in Ephesians 5 verses 23. thru 32.

Some will disagree with me but, the saved are also described as a city the "bride of Christ" given the name, or referred to as "Holy Jerusalem" , in Revelation Chapter 21 verses 9 & 10.
If one looks deeper you realize they (the names) don't fit the description of cities, and are instead, the Lost, and the Saved.

Babylon the Great, bride of the anti-christ.

Holy Jerusalem, bride of Christ.

That's the way I see it.

Babylon the Great is described in symbol as an immoral woman who sits over or controls “peoples and crowds and nations and tongues,” and who has “a kingdom over the kings of the earth” and ‘commits fornication’ with these kings.—Revelation 17:1, 2, 15,*18.
This means that Babylon the Great is an empire. Since “the kings of the earth,” the political element, are said to ‘commit fornication’ with her, Babylon the Great itself is not a political empire. The book of Revelation shows that when Babylon the Great is destroyed the “merchants” of the earth stand at a distance and mourn; so it is not a commercial empire either. (Revelation 18:15) Could it, then, be a religious empire? Well, religion has certainly had great influence over the political kingdoms, and its control does extend over peoples of all the earth. But why should this religious empire be pictured by a prostitute woman guilty of fornication? Because it mixes religion and politics. As regards Christendom, the Bible shows that those who claim to serve God but are unfaithful and enter into relations with the political powers are viewed by God as spiritual prostitutes or adulteresses.

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.

The seven heads mean seven mountains, where the woman sits on top. 10 And there are seven kings: Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet arrived; but when he does arrive, he must remain a short while. 11 And the wild beast that was but is not, it is also an eighth king, but it springs from the seven, and it goes off into destruction.

In Revelation there appearsto be both a religious "Babylon" and an economic power house"Babylon". John would have known that identifying Rome as the center of world evil and projecting its coming destruction would have been treason at the time and all who followed Christ would have been complicit inhis writing. So he could NOT have beenthat bold; that's maybe why John wrote us that his Babylon was a"mystery" in Rev 17:5.


Although, in keeping with the “mystery”, John may very well had a vision of a future city he did not recognize. So it could just as easily be New York City, as it also fit the revelation very well especially with the United Nations being there." See Rev 18:3.
