Profs and Pints presents: «Speak of the Devil,» a discussion of Satan over the ages, with Mikki Brock, associate professor of history at Washington and Lee University and scholar of demonology, witchcraft, and early modern Scotland.

Prepare for one hell of a talk as Professor Mikki Brock returns to the Bier Baron Tavern for a second dark October night.

The devil is one of the most recognizable figures in America and Europe. He looms large in religion, art, literature, popular culture, and even political rhetoric. Even in this comparatively secular age, people remained fascinated by Satan.

But what is the history behind our collective interest in the evil one? And why does the demonic continue to capture our imaginations?

Come explore the history of one of Christianity’s most frightening and fascinating figures with Professor Brock, who wowed a Profs and Pints audience last March with a talk on witches and witch trials. She teaches a class on the history of the devil and is the author of Satan and the Scots: The Devil in Post-Reformation Scotland, c.1560-1700. (Advance tickets: $12. Doors: $15, save $2 with student ID.)
