:The term naos is found thirteen times in the Apocalypse, indicating the significant place it occupies within the book. To date, no complete study of the theme of the temple in this Book exists. Taking into consideration the scholarly contributions that have been made by those studying the book or the theme of the temple in the New Testament, the present work proposes an analysis of the verses containing the term naos in view of establishing John the Seer's use of temple imagery to speak of the Church. The study concludes by presenting the temple theology of the Book of Revelation including a comparison with the texts of the Old Testament, Jewish intertestamental literature and the New Testament with particular regard to the Fourth Gospel.
