Lucifer Book 1 – 5 (): Lucifer Morningstar is a DC Comics character appearing primarily as a supporting character in the comic book.
I know that for a fact. I found similar truths while reading The Brothers Karamazov.
The characters who succumbed to pride—and thus to the influence of the demonic—lived according to false narratives about their identity. One calls himself a buffoon. Another poses as an intellectual.
Yet another is torn between being a romantic hero or a sensualist. A man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point where he does not discern any truth.
The more we believe in ourselves, the less capacity we have for discerning truth. We want to be in charge of ourselves, in control of our future, and able to make ourselves better.
That sounds nice and good. We Protestants often cringe at this word in part because we recall abuses of power and authoritarian overreach. However, the word should also evoke the one who authored us into being. But God is the ultimate authority. This devil plagues each one of us.
Culture and Cosmos Edina Eszenyi defining creatures as opposed to describing their activities, inevitably characterizes modern scholarship as it did our predecessors. A Cinquecento Contribution The blurred contours of definitions inspired creative ideas regarding the storyline and application possibilities of the Fall of the Angels. The variety is well represented by a work with a cosmological reference in the collections of the Getty Research Institute, elaborately entitled as On the names of angels and demons found in the Divine Scriptures and explained by the Fathers, dedicated to the illustrious reverend Giulio Antonio Santori, the highest cardinal of Santa Severina, and on the Ecclesiastical Hierarchy Angelorvm et daemonvm nomina et attribvta passim in divinis scriptvris contenta ad patrvm sententiam explicata ad Illvstris et Reverendiss Ivlivm Antonium Sanctorivm Cardinalem Sanctae Severinae amplissimvm et de Ecclesiastica Hierarchia, GRI MS A The manuscript is a folio lexicon of angels and demons in Latin, accompanied by a treatise on the parallel of the angelic and ecclesiastical hierarchies.
It was dedicated to the distinguished Cardinal Giulio Antonio Santori — in the hope of eventual publication. The manuscript interprets direct and metaphorical references to angels and demons, primarily from the Scriptures. The format is most reminiscent of a lexicon, with either a name or a metaphor highlighted as keywords at the top of the pages, followed by, on average, interpretations of one to two pages. The work opens with a foreword and a dedication, and then divides into two respective sections, De Angelis and De Demoniis.
Most of these metaphors are related to the Fall of the Angels. The author defined demons as fallen angels, making the disputed tradition the conceptual spine of the work.
Culture and Cosmos Thunderbolt: Shaping the Image of Lucifer in the Cinquecento Veneto This unusual manuscript is signed by an Early Modern Catholic reformer author, Vincenzo Cicogna, born around into a popular local painter dynasty of Verona. His reforms served as a model even for the Council of Trent. Throughout the construction and implementation of the reforms, Giberti cooperated with a group of learned ecclesiasts with Vincenzo Cicogna among them.
His networks reached as high as Charles Borromeo, whom he assisted in pastoral visits in Cicogna started to publish as rector of the local monastery of San Zeno in Oratorio, a post he held between and Prior to the Angelorum he published two sermon collections, one or two speeches, and a commentary of the Psalms with Cabbalistic meditations on letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
The dedication to high-level ecclesiasts was a common feature of the works, and Cicogna characteristically chose an outstandingly influential ecclesiast for the Angelorum as well. Olschki, , pp. Bollettino del Museo Civico di Verona 7 : pp. The Oratio in Bernardi Naugerii cardin[alis] amplissimi et episcopi veronen[sis] aduentu Venice: Iordani Zileti, was an oratory speech given by Cicogna when Cardinal Bernardo Navagero paid a visit to Verona.
In all probability, the Thesaurus is identical with a work on prophecies and attributes mentioned in the Angelorum's dedication as a manuscript that Cicogna had sent to Cardinal Santori for publication a year before the dedication was composed.
This is all the more interesting as a letter attached to the Thesaurus' dedication prohibited Vincenzo Cicogna from publishing or even composing anything related to theology in the future. Cicogna clearly did the opposite and more in the Angelorum. The simile is explained in the wider context of the Fall of the Angels in the lexicon entry with the Latin keyword Fulgur Fol.
Cicogna painted a multi-dimensional portrait of Lucifer as the leader of the fallen angels. References to the demon-turned-angel recur in numerous of his lexicon entries, revealing additional details to the basics set down in Lucifer's own, doubled entry.
He was as an angel similar to the morning star, brighter than any other angel, with a unique splendour similar to that of the stars. Culture and Cosmos Edina Eszenyi lightning constitute a recurring theme, with Book 2 Chapter 43 covering most of the subject. In the momentarily flash he recognized a reminder of how quickly Lucifer fell when the once brightest angel turned dark. As the thunderbolt is caused by a great uproar at the collision of clouds, Lucifer's fall followed a battle with the good angels.
He also adds that the other angels joined Michael in crying out the same words, which demonstrates the ultimate humility of angels, this supreme humility of the creatures who excel all other creatures. Angels are similar to clouds because they are light, subtle and fast, and because they mediate between heaven and earth, he says.
As clouds preserve the earth from the heat of the sun, angels preserve people from evil, and the sky is their dwelling place.
Thematically this entry belongs to the group explaining the angelic nature while offering one of the most picturesque metaphors in the work.
He lists three types of thunderstorms on the basis of Natural History 2. The first one is the dry thunderstorm that produces no precipitation, and dissipates objects. The second one is what he calls moist thunderbolt, meaning apparently the thunderstorm with precipitation, able to blacken objects.
A mysterious third type, which Cicogna calls bright lightning quod clarum vocant after Pliny, empties vessels without trace while leaving their lids intact.
This reminds Cicogna of the way the devil harms the souls, often emptying them in subtle and unnoticeable ways.
The entry concludes with a reminder that as the light remains an essential element of the thunderbolt, Lucifer has the capacity and unfortunate tendency to transform himself into an angel of light and to mislead people. Finally, and maybe on a somewhat lighter note, Cicogna also recalls that the thunderbolt was superstitiously applauded in ancient civilizations: Natural History notes that worshipping lightning by clucking with the tongue was a worldwide tradition. Cicogna sees a craft of Lucifer himself in this superstition, an expression of worship that the fallen angel sinfully desired for himself.
Diabolus enim, Culture and Cosmos Edina Eszenyi The use of Pliny to explain Christian theology is evidence of the harmony sought by Cicogna between Christianity and pre-Christian cosmological ideas. References to non-Christian sources are abundant in the Angelorum, markedly represented by Greek philosophers such as Socrates, Plato, Aristotle and Empedocles.
