“In order to remove the papacy of the Catholic Church from consideration as the Antichrist (as an act of countering the Protestant Reformation), Francisco Ribera began writing a lengthy (500 page) commentary in 1585 on the Book of Revelation … proposing that the first few chapters of Revelation apply to ancient pagan Rome, and the rest he limited to a yet future period of 3½ literal years, immediately prior to the second coming.” Wikipedia
