Picture Book of Devils, Demons and Witchcraft
Meet the Devil. Nowadays he usually appears as a suave, sly man with telltale horns, hooves and tail; but in the past his bestial nature was emphasized and he cropped up in a wide variety of animal and mixed forms—usually loathly, since in most artistic conceptions he had sacrificed his angelic beauty when he disobeyed and rebelled against God. As shown in some illustrations in this chapter, animal forms for supernatural beings and demons were common in ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian art. The Devil's main objective is to tempt man and lead him away from God. Two of the most famous temptations are illustrated in this chapter: the temptation of Jesus in the desert of Palestine and that of St. Anthony in the desert of Egypt. But every human being must be assailed, and the Devil needs many demon helpers, such as Belial and Beelzebub, who go about the world spreading disease and madness by "possessing" their victims and instigating all sorts of vice.
