The image of a Prince of Darkness, terrifying opponent of gods and men, has existed in many different guises in the human mind through countless ages and among numerous races and nations. This fascinating work explores the historical origins and the development of ideas about this enigmatic being, from religion and mythology to philosophy and literature. Considering the nature of both superstition and evil, Joan O'Grady traces the development of the Devil's image - from the servant of God to the Arch-Enemy of mankind. Whether there is a Dark Enemy operating in our world, or whether it is merely the existence of some fundamental tendency of the human psyche which we call ‘the Prince of Darkness’, an idea of such universality has relevance for all and cannot be ignored ...
