The Lure of the Dark Side: Satan and Western Demonology in Popular Culture (New)
by Partridge, Christopher (e
Book ID: 9781845533106, 1845533100
Please inquire for availability
Personifications of evil in the form of demons, devils, spirits, vampires, and other malign entities can be found across the popular cultural spectrum.

The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
