The "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" is a term used to describe four horsemen that appear in the New Testament of the Christian Bible in chapter six of the Book of Revelation, which describes an apocalyptic vision. Although scholars disagree as to what exactly each horseman represents, the four horsemen are often referred to as Conquest, War, Famine, and Death. Summoned and empowered by God as part of the opening of the seven seals, the horsemen contribute to the widespread destruction that takes place in Revelation as part of the end of the world.
