Not really. There's not really any demonic associations with the pentagram before Eliphas Levi devised one in the mid-19th century. This is also around the time Wicca and other New Age belief systems are first formulated. The upside-down thing is mostly a pop-culture fabrication: Catholicism doesn't really have any negative associations with the upside-down crucifix, there's one on the front door to St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican, because by Catholic tradition that's how Peter was crucified [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Peter#Death].Desenova said:The thing with Christianity is that to them turning something upside down made it evil, the Wiccan star = Pentagram.
I'm not sure where you got this idea from, but I don't know of any evidence that supports it. Inverted crosses are a part of Catholic cannon because of Peter's crucifixion. Even the inverted pentagram is far more a pop-culture icon that a religious one.Desenova said:The thing with Christianity is that to them turning something upside down made it evil, the Wiccan star = Pentagram. But it is always interesting to learn about this stuff and the history of such a prominent figure in human existence.
IMHO The Adventures of Mark Twain Devil is far the most frightening version as he basically says he can't do evil because he doesn't know what evil is.Casual Shinji said:Let's hope next week's episode sees a mention of both Satan in Bedazzled (the Dudley Moore and Peter Cook version) and The Adventures of Mark Twain. They're the best ones.
