Chapter Summary

This chapter offers an inventory of the denominations of the devil and demons in this Missale, proposing to discuss them in their context. It is well-known that the sacramentaria and related liturgical books contain interesting materials in this field. The terminological variety is clearly illustrated in the texts presented by Blaise. As in the other sacramentaries in the Miss. Goth. the protection of God against the powers of darkness and his defence against evil is implored. Particularly in the Easter week and on the feast of the Holy Cross the final victory of Christ over the devil and the demons is commemorated. As could be expected, the denominations of the devil and the demons in the Missale Gothicum. show numerous similarities with other liturgical texts: in terms of frequency, the use of stylistic elements, and the application of contrast and variation through synonyms, often combined with parallellism of sentences.

Keywords: A. Blaise; Christ; demons; denomination; devil; Easter; God; Holy Cross; liturgical books; Missale Gothicum
