The story of the devil by Arturo Graf( )

74 editions published between 1889 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Satan, Beelzebub, Lucifer - the Devil has many names and faces, all of which have always served such artists as Dante, Goethe, or Rodin as a source of inspiration. Graf explores the story of the Devil through the ages and gives an impassioned description of its evolution."--Publisher description
L'art du diable by Arturo Graf( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in French and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C'est le Diable qui tient les fils qui nous remuent! (Charles Beaudelaire, Les Fleurs du Mal, 1857)Satan, Belzébuth, Lucifer ... Le Diable possède de multiples noms et visages qui, toujours, furent une grande source d'inspiration pour les artistes. Longtemps commanditées par les instances religieuses, pour en faire, selon les civilisations, un objet de crainte ou de vénération, les representations du monde des ténèbres eurent souvent vocation à instruire les croyants et à les guider dans le droit chemin. Pour d'autres artistes, tel Hieronymus Bosch, elles étaient un moyen de dénoncer la dégr
Satan, Beelzebub, Luzifer : der Teufel in der Kunst by Arturo Graf( )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in German and held by 869 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

{U201E}Der Teufel hält die Fäden, die uns bewegen!? (Charles Baudelaire, Die Blumen des Bösen, 1857.) Satan, Beelzebub, Luzifer ... der Teufel hat viele Namen und Gesichter; sie alle haben Künstlern stets als Inspirationsquelle gedient. Bilder von Teufeln wurden oftmals von kirchlichen Personen von hohem Rang in Auftrag gegeben, um, je nach Gesellschaft, mit Bildern der Furcht oder Ehrfurcht und mit Darstellungen der Hölle die Gläubigen zu bekehren und sie auf den von ihnen propagierten rechten Pfad der Tugend zu geleiten. Für andere Künstler, wie z. B. Hieronymus Bosch, waren sie ein Mittel, um den völligen moralischen Verfall seiner Zeit anzuprangern. Auf dieselbe Weise hat die Beschäftigung mit dem Teufel in der Literatur oftmals Künstler inspiriert, die den Teufel mithilfe von Bildern austreiben wollten; dazu gehören insbesondere die Werke von Dante Allighieri und Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Im 19. Jahrhundert fühlte sich die Romantik zunächst von dem mysteriösen und ausdrucksvollen Gehalt des Themas angezogen und setzte die Verherrlichung der Böswilligkeit fort. Auguste Rodins Höllentor, ein monumentales Lebenswerk, für das er sich sehr gequält hat, stellt nicht nur diese Leidenschaft für das Böse perfekt dar, sondern enthüllt auch den Grund für diese Faszination. Was könnte in der Tat fesselnder, motivierender für einen Mann sein, als seine künstlerische Meisterschaft zu prüfen, in dem er die Schönheit im Hässlichen und Diabolisch darstellt?

"Miti e leggende" non è solo un libro di erudizione, è un testo dove rigore scientifico e sensibilità letteraria si intrecciano per analizzare e descrivere come nel Medioevo la tradizione subentrasse alla conoscenza obiettiva, e vi subentrasse impastata di fede, d'immaginazione e talora di superstizione.
