The malign figure of the Antichrist endures in modern culture,
whether religious or secular; and the spectral shadow he has cast
over the ages continues to exert a strong and powerful fascination.
Philip C. Almond tells the story of the son of Satan from his early
beginnings to the present day, and explores this false Messiah in
theology, literature and the history of ideas. Discussing the
origins of the malevolent being who at different times was cursed
as Belial, Nero or Damien, the author reveals how Christianity in
both East and West has imagined this incarnation of absolute evil
destined to appear at the end of time. For the better part of the
last two thousand years, Almond suggests, the human battle between
right and wrong has been envisaged as a mighty cosmic duel between
good and its opposite, culminating in an epic final showdown
between Christ and his deadly arch-nemesis.
