This trilingual collection contains studies on how the literary guises of God's enemies originated, how they were presented and what meaning they held in the Jewish Holy Scriptures, the Christian Bible, ancient and rabbinical Jewish writings, in early Christianity and in gnostic texts. Exegetic-philological, history of religion, Jewish- as well as conceptual and history of theology aspects are all comprehensively dealt with. Scholars from the universities of Strasbourg, Tubingen and Uppsala's evangelical theology faculties examine Satan, Beelzebub, the Anti-Christ, the diabolical, demons, evil intent and other God-opposing forces, as well as the Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier's treatment of evil, in their contributions.
