Abstract: Women are amongst the main protagonists of the book of Revelation. Their images, functions, and significance in the text of the visionary seer from Patmos are the subject of this synchronic study. The author points to the fact that the horizon of exegetical inquiries used in the book of Revelation, apart from the nouns γυνή (woman, wife) and νύμφη (bride), is broadened by the use of juxtaposed elements of feminine symbolism and nuptial imagery. John has endowed popular themes from the intersection of Judaism and the Greco-Roman world with new meanings. They contribute to the image of the personified Church, which fights against personified evil and triumphs as the Bride of the Lamb.
