History of the Devil

New two-part history of the Devil to be published in Paranormal magazine.

In the first of a two-part feature Leo Ruickbie reveals the history of the force of evil known in the Western tradition as variously Satan, Lucifer, the Enemy, the Adversary, and most commonly the Devil. In part one Leo reveals the Devil’s origins and traces his evolution into the Middle Ages.

Paranormal asked me to delve into the dark history of the Devil. I’ll be looking at possession, The Exorcist, and how the Devil started out as God’s hard man (or angel). When did he get those horns? And who gave them to him? All and more will be revealed.

The first part is out September 2010. You can get an advance glimpse of some of the graphics for the article from editor Richard Holland.
