"When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for half an hour". (Book of Revelation, 8: 1) "A great sign appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head; she is with child, and cries out in travail and in pain in childbirth. Another sign appeared in heaven: a great red serpent with seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads seven diadems. Its tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven and hurled them to the earth. [...] The Woman was given the two wings of the eagle, great to fly into the desert, to her place, away from the Serpent, where she has to be fed a time and two times and half a time. Then the Serpent vomited out of his mouth behind the Woman like a river of water." (Book of Revelation 12: 1)
