The number six-hundred and sixty-six has religious significance and is referenced in the book of Revelations in the Judeo-Christian Bible. The number is often associated with the Devil, the Antichrist or some measure of occult ritual pertaining to Satanism. Commonly referred to as the Number of the Beast, the apocalyptic symbolism behind the number is translated in the King James Bible as:
Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
