4.0 out of 5 stars A great book with some thought provoking views, 30 Dec. 2001
This review is from: Lucifer: The Devil in the Middle Ages (Cornell Paperbacks) (Paperback)
A book that describes and elaborates on the concept of Lucifer, Satan and diabology in general through history, from Byzantium to Bogomil tradition to the Islamic concepts, but with emphasis on Christian tradition. The devil is seen through various point of views: religious but especially historical, which in the end tend to be more consistent and less biased. This results in a more accurate perception of the concept, but also in a very contradictory book. Indeed the book discusses some of the heresies of the middle ages. I wouldn't recommend it to easily offended religious people. Otherwise it is a great book which makes the reader think about the world we live in and the evil which is found in it.
