Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is kept in a storage container in Sector 11-N at Site-19. The warehouse in which SCP-XXXX is currently contained should be put under the watch of no less than 2 Level-2 armed guards at all times, and kept under the constant surveillance of video cameras.

Individuals affected by SCP-XXXX are to be administered Class-B amnestics, and released into the care of an appropriate Foundation operated psychological facility for rehabilitation and eventual release.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a hardcover copy of The Book of Revelation, discovered at the Marshall Harris Community Church in Chadron, Nebraska on 04/06/2011. SCP-XXXX was originally bound with leather straps, and three stainless steel clasp, two of which have broken since Foundation acquisition. SCP-XXXX displays no anomalous properties on its own, and Foundation researchers have determined it to be made entirely from non anomalous components.

SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects manifest when a person of devote Christian or Catholic faith picks it up and reads its contents. Subjects who read the contents of SCP-XXXX will gradually begin to believe that they themselves are John, the author of Revelation, and become progressively more obsessed with the biblical depiction of the apocalypse.

In 98% of recorded cases, individuals who finish reading SCP-XXXX become completely convinced that they are John, and will attempt to get others to indulge in preparations of the end of worlds.
