A. The Fourth Revolution and the Preternatural

A soul being dragged into hell by two demons.

“Omnes dii gentium daemonia” (“All of the gods of the gentiles are devils”), say the Scriptures.1 In this structuralist perspective, in which magic is presented as a form of knowledge, to what degree may a Catholic perceive the deceitful flashes, the canticle (at once sinister and attractive, soothing and delirious, atheistic and fetishistically credulous) with which, from the bottom of the abysses where he lies eternally, the Prince of Darkness attracts those who have denied Jesus Christ and His Church?

Lucifer – torturing souls as well as being tortured himself in hell. Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry.

This is a question that theologians can and should discuss. We mean the real theologians, that is, the few who still believe in the existence of the devil and hell, especially the few among these few who have the courage to face the scorn and persecution of the mass media and to speak out.
