P. Melchizedek in The History of the Devil

The History of the Devil

2009 NR

Explore the origins of evil and the evolution of the devil in this engaging documentary that revisits ancient religions and explains why a wicked force was a necessary counterpoint to the idea of a supreme being. The program then wends its way through the Middle Ages, when Satan became a convenient tool for social control, and into the modern era that views the Prince of Darkness as an entertaining pop culture reference.
