If there never had been a Devil, how would our culture be like today? How would our art look like? How would our philosophy be? How would our morals work if there never was an evil being in Christianity? Above all, how would one psychotherapy session look like if the father of all our iniquities and guiltiness had never been summoned into our civilization?
Death, fear, isolation, meaninglessness: how did medieval man face these four horsemen of existence? Such questions and many more, left me wondering when I concerned myself with the idea of building a systematic research about the Devil and his representations on that period that we conventionally call the Carolingian Age.
