Do we still need the Devil? Professorial Lecture - Darren Oldridge

This Halloween let’s spare a thought for the Devil.  Once a huge and terrible figure in western culture, he is now largely a historical curiosity.  But should we miss him?  In this talk Prof Darren Oldridge explores some of the ways that people have engaged with the prince of darkness in the past and present, and the sometimes surprisingly positive results. 
This talk is not suitable for children.
