"The Adventures of Hungry Asmodeu" Album: The Fifth Pillar Of Conscience (2004) Asmodeu: Asmodai or Asmodeus is a demon mostly known from the deuterocanonical Book of Tobit. The demon is also mentioned in some Talmudic legends, for instance, in the story of the construction of the Temple of Solomon. Spelling variations deriving from Asmodai/Asmodeus include Ashmadia, Ashmedai (Hebrew), Asmodaios-Ασμοδαίος (Greek), Asmoday, Asmodée (French), Asmodee, Asmodei, Ashmodei, Ashmodai, Asmodeios, Asmodeo (Spanish and Italian, from a Latin declination), Asmodeu, Asmodeius, Asmodi, Chammaday, Chashmodai, Sidonay, Sydonai. The name Asmodai is believed to derive from Avestan language *aēšma-daēva, where aēšma means "wrath", and daēva signifies "demon". While the daēva Aēšma is thus Zoroastrianism's demon of wrath and is also well attested as such, the compound aēšma-daēva is not attested in scripture. It is nonetheless likely that such a form did exist, and that the Book of Tobit's "Asmodaios" (Ἀσμοδαῖος) and the Talmud's "Ashmedai" (אשמדאי) reflect it. Although there are also functional parallels between Zoroastrianism's Aēšma and Judaism's Asmodai/Asmodeus, the linguistic relationship does not denote conceptual continuity. The two are mythologically and culturally distinct. The Asmodeu of the Book of Tobit is attracted by Sarah, Raguel's daughter, and is not willing to let any husband possess her (Tobit, vi.13); hence he slays seven successive husbands on their wedding-nights, thus impeding the consummation of the sexual act. When the young Tobias is about to marry her, Asmodeus purposes the same fate for him; but Tobias is enabled, through the counsels of his attendant angel Raphael, to render him innocuous. By placing a fish's heart and liver on red-hot cinders, Tobias produces a smoky vapor which causes the demon to flee to Egypt, where Raphael binds him. Asmodeus would thus seem to be a demon characterized by carnal desire; but he is also described as an evil spirit in general: 'Ασμοδαίος τὸ πονηρὸν δαιμόνιον or τõ δαιμόνιον πονηρόν, and πνεῦμα ἀκάϑαρτον. It is possible, moreover, that the statement, "Asmodeus loved Sarah," implies that he was attracted not by women in general, but by Sarah only. [Znaczenie przypisywane Asmodeusowi w demonologii jest mniejsze niż w judaizmie czy zoroastrianizmie - według Mniejszego klucza Salomona plasuje się on dopiero na 32 miejscu w piekielnej hierarchii. Chrześcijańscy demonolodzy są zgodni co do jego zadań w Piekle - ma on rozbudzać pokusy cielesne. Według Malleus Maleficarum jest on demonem pożądania, z czym zgadzał się Sebastian Michaelis dodając, że jego przeciwnikiem jest Św. Jan. Według niektórych XVI-wiecznych demonologów, którzy przypisywali każdemu z miesięcy "patronującego" mu demona, Asmodeus jest najsilniejszy w listopadzie. Według innych demonologów, czasem przypisanym temu demonowi był okres od 30 stycznia do 8 lutego. Ma on pod komendą 72 legiony demonów i jest jednym z królów Piekła (Lucyfer miałby być cesarzem). Według innych podań jego domeną jest też hazard, zemsta i homoseksualizm - miał być protektorem gejów, a homoseksualizm był jednym z jego sposobów uwodzenia. W Dictionnaire Infernal Collina de Plancy jest przedstawiony z ciałem człowieka, kozimi nogami zakończonymi szponami, wężowym ogonem i trzema głowami - jedna człowieka zionącego ogniem, druga barana i trzecia byka. Jedzie na hybrydzie lwa ze smoczymi skrzydłami i szyją.] Cynthia Witthoft
