How to use Asmodeus in a sentence
The evil demon Asmodeus is the Persian Aeshma Daeva.
It is generally agreed that the second part of the name Asmodeus is the same as the Zend daewa, dew, " demon."
From the part played by Asmodeus in this story, he has been often familiarly called the genius of matrimonial unhappiness or jealousy, and as such may be compared with Lilith.
The legend of Asmodeus is given fully in the Jewish Encyclopaedia,s.v.
It is doubtful, however, whether the Asmodeus of the book of Tobit is the same as the Aeshma Daewa of the Bundahesh.Advertisement
