Demons records and explores the visions of evil throughout the centuries, bringing together over 250 striking illustrations of the depraved and the damned in fine-art paintings, lithographs, illuminated manuscripts, etchings, and sculptures. TheMoreDemons records and explores the visions of evil throughout the centuries, bringing together over 250 striking illustrations of the depraved and the damned in fine-art paintings, lithographs, illuminated manuscripts, etchings, and sculptures. The images present a vivid and compelling if harrowing selection, and are accompanied by text that explores the complex iconography developed by artists to put form and face to chaos and evil.

With its detailed analysis of the symbolism and mythology of hell, Satan and his cohorts from the earliest period of Christianity to today, and with its unparalleled collection of images, Demons appeals to both those interested in the history of art and to the growing number of people who are fascinated by the subject from spiritual and theological points of view.
