Il Diavolo non è un'invenzione del Cristianesimo: esiste in tutte le tradizioni e sotto tutti i cieli, dal momento in cui il linguaggio schiuse all'uomo le porte del Sacro. Con l'età moderna l. a. sua presenza diviene soprattutto uno stato della coscienza, un'avventura individuale. Questa "biografia" racconta il Diavolo nella maniera più imparziale (origini, nascita, aspetto fisico, studi, amori, metamorfosi e opere), seguendo le tracce del suo operato nella tradizione, nel mito, nella storia e nella letteratura fantastica. Ovunque nel mondo, e da sempre, il Diavolo ordisce trappole e incantesimi, protagonista assoluto della lunga disputa tra Caos e Ordine, del difficile accordo tra conoscenza e amore.
