The ?Great Whore? of the Book of Revelation?the hostile symbolization used to illustrate the author's critique of empire?has attracted considerable attention in Revelation scholarship. Smith seeks to dismantle the either/or dichotomy within the ?Great Whore? debate. Using postcolonial womanist interpretation of the woman Babylon, Smith highlights the simultaneous duality of her characterization?her depiction as both a female brothel slave and as an empress or imperial city. Most remarkably, however, Smith's reading also sheds light on her own ambivalent characterization as both a victim and participant in empire.
