Beloved Antichrist is the 16th full-length album by Swedish symphonic metal band Therion. It is a triple album and was released on 9 February 2018 by Nuclear Blast Records. The album is the sound track to a rock musical by the band, who are accompanied by a large orchestra and choir. The rock musical has yet not been staged and was delayed indefinitely due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the band instead started to work on the next regular album Leviathan. The album cover was created by Thomas Ewerhart. It was the band's first collection of new material since Sitra Ahra in 2010, while group founder Christofer Johnsson had toyed with the idea of an opera for 15 years.

Johnsson wrote the music with Per Albinsson as lyricist. The album consists of 46 songs and is inspired by and partly based on "A Short Tale of the Antichrist" by Vladímir Soloviov. Johnsson expanded the story to include 27 characters played by 15 vocalists.
