"John of Patmos" is the name given to the unknown author of what Harold 
Bloom (and his insignificant follower, me) call a "rancid" book. OTOH, as a 
heathen, I do think that it has pepped up the religion considerably! For TV 
evangelists, say, suicidal cults, and plenty of morons everywhere!

Just to balance the discussion of the aesthetics of Revelation....

I think Revelation is a spectacularly poetic work, with some gems of great 
beauty. I've always found the sixth chapter (the four horsemen) particularly 
good. And then heaven with the lamps on the crystal sea. And the 
end--something along the lines of "they will need neither candles nor sun 
for God will be their light." Very beautiful. Associated with suicidal cults 
or not, I still think Revelation is one of those books that really deserves 
to be read.

Just my humble opinion,
