Demonspotting 8: Lilith

Okay, you guys knew I had to start Bad Girls month with the grandmama of them all… It’s Lilith, Queen of all Demons.

Enjoy this Classic post… It’s an exciting month though, so come on back Saturday for an all new demonic broad.

Demon’s wings are as angel’s wings.
Their halos are as shining bright.
They sing as well as angels, too.
But only when it’s night.
– Calvin Miller

Demonspotting 8: Lilith: The queen of the demons

Lady Lilith by Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Supposedly, Lilith was the first wife of Adam, before Eve. She was created at the same time and demanded equality with her husband. God said no, so she left Eden to go hang out with Satan.

Because of this, she’s been kind of held up as a proto-feminist heroine: www.lilithfair.com/

Lilith has a fondness for killing babies. I think we can agree that is less heroic.
