Excerpt: Satanism is a group of religions that is composed of a diverse number of ideological and philosophical beliefs and social phenomena. Their shared feature include symbolic association with, admiration for the character of, and even veneration of Satan or similar rebellious, promethean, and liberating figures. Generally, those Satanists who believe in the Judeo-Christian concept of Satan are linked into the belief system of today's Judeo-Christian religion, as they believe in the same theology presented in the Hebrew Bible. Satan, also called Lucifer by many Christians, first appears in the Books of Chronicles provoking David to take a census of Israel. In the Book of Job he is called "the Satan" (meaning "the accuser") and acted as the prosecutor in God's court. A character named "Satan" was described as the tempter of Jesus in many of the Gospels of early Christians.

Dieser Band bietet aufgrund seiner interdisziplinären Perspektive, die Ansätze der Medizin-, Kunst-, Kultur- und Liturgiegeschichte miteinander verbindet, Einsichten in die kulturelle Bedeutung der menschlichen Hand in der Vormoderne. Autorinnen und Autoren aus unterschiedlichen Disziplinen greifen u. a. voneinander abweichende religiöse Traditionen auf und vergleichen diese in einem neuen Licht. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf dem Waschen der Hände (im Christentum, Judentum und Islam), der mit der Hand zusammenhängenden Materialität (Gießgefäße, Handprothesen), auf der Frage des Einsatzes der Hand in verschiedenen Kontexten (als wichtigstes Instrument des Arztes, des Künstlers, in der Masturbation), ihrer symbolischen und liturgischen Aufladung (etwa in der Hagiographie, in Geistergeschichten), auf Gesten (insbesondere Schmähgesten) und der plastischen Abbildung der Hand (mittelalterliche Handreliquiare, medizinische Handmoulagen).
