This a short fictional story originally titled Tale of the Antichrist by the Russian author, Vladimir Sergeyevich Solovyov. It was published by him in the Nedelya newspaper on February 27, 1900. It tells the tale of a smooth-talking antichrist quite accidentally uniting the remaining faithful Catholics, Orthodox and Protestants during in the final persecution on earth.
