Satan: Prince of Darkness

Satan: Prince of Darkness: "From the dawn of the universe to this very day, Satan is believed to roam the earth, vowing to destroy man. Where there is light, Satan brings darkness. Where there is peace, he wages war. Where he finds love, he ushers in hate. Join us as we tell the story of the fallen angel Lucifer, the light bearer, who became the keeper of darkness." - Ancient Almanac, History Channel.

Basically, a run-down of the mythological historicity of the Judeo-Christian depiction of Satan throughout the ages, including those allegedly in league with Lucifer, like the erstwhile "witches" of Europe and Salem, the Catholic Church's propagandizing and scare-tactics, with commentaries by theologians. Towards the end of the program, scenes from Satanis are displayed, naming The Church of Satan a "cult", which we are definiely not - needless to say, we are a religion and philosophy fully recognized by the government, yet this is a mistake commonly made on such documentaries repeatedly, with very few exceptions. One would think that if such a presentation were to air scenes from Our Archival material, the producers would make some sort of effort to gather factual information from Us, but I digress. This presentation is nothing too spectacular - the high points are some nice artwork, from Dore' to Albrecht Durer.

Rating: 3/5.
