In the book of Revelation, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride out before the Last Judgement. The four horses are described by St John the Divine as white, red, black and pale. By tradition, the Horsemen are named Pestilence/Pollution, War, Famine and Death, but only Death is named in Revelation. War and Famine are alluded to (“to kill with sword… and hunger”). Pestilence is not mentioned; the bearer of the crown, sitting atop the white horse, is said to be the Antichrist, or in some versions Christ himself.
