The Back Loft

Lady Lilith

Lilith, Adams first wife created equally from the earth as him, cursed by God’s three angels because she refused to lie beneath Adam. She afflicts babies with fatal diseases with in eighth days of their birth and steal the seeds of men sleeping alone to birth her own demon children that plague mankind. Drawn circles, symbols on walls, inscribed bowls and amulets of the three angels names may protect you from Lilith’s afflictions. The demoness is continuously portrayed as bewitching, seductive and domineering. She was depicted in Venetian paintings with a red ribbon on her left wrist symbolizing female gentalia. The powerful and evil temptress was adopted by feminism as a symbol against patriarchy.
