The Devil in Disguise illuminates the impact of the two British revolutions of the seventeenth century and the shifts in religious, political, scientific, literary, economic, social, and moral culture that they brought about. It does so through the fascinating story of one family and their locality: the Cowpers of Hertford. Their dramatic history contains a murder mystery, bigamy, a scandal novel, and a tyrannized wife, all set against a backdrop of violently competing local factions, rampant religious prejudice, and the last conviction of a witch in England. Spencer Cowper was accused of murdering a Quaker, and his brother William had two illegitimate children by his second 'wife'. Their scandalous lives became the source of public gossip, much to the horror of their mother, Sarah, who poured out her heart in a diary that also chronicles her feeling of being enslaved to her husband. Her two sons remained in the limelight. Both were instrumental in the prosecution of Henry Sacheverell, a firebrand cleric who preached a sermon about the illegitimacy of resistance and religious toleration. His parliamentary trial in 1710 provoked serious riots in London. William Cowper also intervened in 1712 to secure the life of Jane Wenham, whose trial provoked a wide-ranging debate about witchcraft beliefs. The Cowpers and their town are a microcosm of a changing world. Their story suggests that an early 'Enlightenment', far from being simply a movement of ideas sparked by 'great thinkers', was shaped and advanced by local and personal struggles.

Die Bedeutung von Tradition in den Alltagskulturen der Gegenwart unterliegt einem markanten Wandel. Unter dem Einfluss von Globalisierungsprozessen und dem Innovationsdruck der modernen Popkultur sinken die kulturellen Zugangsschwellen zu traditionalen Phänomenen. Tradition wird fluide und erfährt so eine Revitalisierung in den unterschiedlichsten populärkulturellen Medien. Am Beispiel der zentralen europäischen Traditionsfigur des Teufels zeichnet diese Studie den fundamentalen Wandel nach, den Satan, Mephisto, Luzifer durch den Transfer in das popkulturelle Medium Rockmusik vollzogen hat. Auf der methodischen Grundlage einer Analyse popularer Medientexte entwickelt sich so eine spannende und materialreiche Geschichte des Diabolischen in der Rockmusik von den 'Teufelspakten' des Delta Blues über das Spiel mit populärer Religiosität der Beatles bis zu den satanistischen Black-Metal-Szenen der modernen Heavy-Metal-Kultur. Dabei wird deutlich, wie sehr der Rekurs auf den Teufel stets von zeit- und gruppenspezifischen kulturellen Bedürfnissen gelenkt wird. Das Traditionale bleibt stets auch das Aktuelle. Es bildet eine wichtige Zukunftsoption innerhalb der reflexiven Moderne. Manuel Trummer, Dr. phil, arbeitet als wissenschaftlicher Assistent am Lehrstuhl Vergleichende Kulturwissenschaft im Institut für Information und Medien, Sprache und Kultur der Universität Regensburg. Forschungsschwerpunkte sind Populare Musikkulturen des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts, Traditionale Phänomene im Prozess der Modernisierung sowie Ernährungskulturen im historischen und europäischen Vergleich.
