Samael or Satan, who still appears in the Old Testament as an accuser before God's throne, becomes the ultimate adversary of God in the New Testament. In fact, the battle between the rebelling angels and Michael's heavenly hosts is only once mentioned: "Michael and his angels fought against the dragon [...] and his angels, and he did not conquer, and the great dragon that was thrown out was thrown out old serpent, which means devil and Satan, who seduces the whole world. He was thrown to the earth, and his angels with him. "(Rev 12, 7ff.) Thus, Michael, dressed in a gold armor, also plays the central role in this painting of epic struggle, bumping into the grotesque, animal-like figures followers of Samael down into the depths. © Meisterdrucke
