The 7 Churches of Revelation
A major investigation into the mystery of the end times
In the first century AD, a powerful ideological revolution was taking place in Asia Minor. What was to become one of the world’s greatest religions was opposing the ancient pagan cults and the order established by the all-powerful imperial Rome, and was spreading inexorably throughout the Roman Empire: Christianity was on the march. It is in this hostile context that the book of the Apocalypse of Saint John will impose itself. This text, reputed to be the most complex and mysterious in the Bible, was addressed to seven churches in present-day Turkey, which received seven personal letters from the risen Christ.
Passionate about the history of Christianity, I, Christophe Hanauer, decided to investigate the secrets of the 7 churches of the Apocalypse… What are these churches and what do they represent? What do they have to teach us about the history of our civilisation? What is their message for Christians today and for humanity in the 21st century? Are the prophecies of Revelation still relevant?
