And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. It appears that the woman sitting on the beast controls or rules the beast—as the rider on a horse controls or directs it. There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. And concerning the 10 horns, Revelation 17 explains: Putting this information together, it seems that the scarlet woman—the Roman Catholic Church—was prophesied to ride or control successive continuations of the Roman Empire, the last of which will arise at the end of this age.
This last revival of the Roman Empire will be a combination of 10 kings that will come together to form a final, short-lived resurgence of this historic fourth empire of Daniel 7. This end-of-the-age empire—which the harlot will control for a short time—will receive its power from Satan the devil.
Who is able to make war with him?

She even goes so far as to tell Dimmesdale that their sin has been paid for by their daily penance and that their sin will not keep them from getting to heaven, however, the Puritans believed that such a sin surely condemns.
But Hester had been alienated from the Puritan society, both in her physical life and spiritual life. When Dimmesdale dies, she knows she has to move on because she can no longer conform to the Puritans' strictness. Her thinking is free from religious bounds and she has established her own different moral standards and beliefs. It was long thought that Hawthorne originally planned The Scarlet Letter to be a shorter novelette , part of a collection named Old Time Legends , and that his publisher, James Thomas Fields , convinced him to expand the work to a full-length novel.
Fields persuaded Hawthorne to publish The Scarlet Letter alone along with the earlier-completed "Custom House" essay but he had nothing to do with the length of the story. It was the last Salem home where the Hawthorne family lived. A 2,copy second edition included a preface by Hawthorne dated March 30, , that stated he had decided to reprint his Introduction "without the change of a word The only remarkable features of the sketch are its frank and genuine good-humor As to enmity, or ill-feeling of any kind, personal or political, he utterly disclaims such motives".
