A historian turned philosopher argues that evil arises not from the Devil but from the belief in one. He shows that the Satan of Judeo-Christian mythology was unknown to almost all other cultures, and was probably invented by Persian clerics about six centuries before our era in order to demonize their political adversaries. Translated and slightly revised from Histoire gTnTrale du diable published by Editions Robert Laffont in 1993. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
