 Who was in the retinue of Woland? Black Magic and Its Exposure Why is Satan in the novel MA Bulgakov call Woland ? Yes, because another nickname, Mephistopheles, was already firmly associated with "Faust" IV Goethe (and even with Gounod). Not addict! Here MA Bulgakov and chose to Satan, who came to Moscow, another name: Foland (Voland). It is nicknamed the devil was almost unknown Russian public. And in "Faust" IV Goethe, it appears only once. «Faland» German "crafty". In Russia, by the way, the devil had the same nickname.

Again, do not play with the reader in "guessing"? Bulgakov (fortunately) - not Chernyshevsky. Do not tell on the first page of magic word, then to a long, clever and boring to explain, for what that word was said. The name "foreign consultant" did not cause any associations, and only after some time suspected the reader: and yet, perhaps, is 11,111,132. it is [/b] .

Similarly, the reader was allowed to break his head over the mysterious name improvised Woland. The names of these - derivatives of the Greek and Hebraic words. And if you know the translation, they lose much of their mystique. Let's flip through \"Diabolical deck of\" and penetrate into the mystery of the names of the devil's henchmen.

Let's start with "Jacks". As already mentioned, this is - Abaddon The Demon War, cool and indifferent killer.

  - Abaddon - quietly called Woland, and then from the wall the figure of a gaunt man in dark glasses. These glasses are somehow made to Marguerite such a strong impression that she softly cried, burying her face in Woland's leg.
- Yes, stop it - cried Woland - to modern people are so nervous ... Do not you see that he is wearing glasses. Also, never been, and never will be, when Abaddon appears before someone prematurely ...
- Is it possible that he took off his glasses for a second? - Asked Margarita ...
- But this can not be - seriously said Woland waved his hand at Abaddon, and he was no more.

The word "Abaddon" of Semitic origin and means "destruction", "extermination". In modern Hebrew there of words having the meaning of "lost", "disappear", "commit suicide". Many of the Semitic peoples who inhabited the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea, Abaddon called the sun god. The sun in these parts - not affectionate Central Russia "sun" and, in fact, sizzling all killer, who must hide.

The ancient Greeks carried the god in his pantheon under the name "Apollyon (the destroyer) and also made a god of the sun and ruthless killer. One of the attributes of Apollo, Apollyon was bow with startling without missing arrows. A beautiful poetic image to the sun's deadly rays! Much later the murderer became the patron of arts and surrounded himself with a host of beauties Moose. In real life, this also happens.

The following "map" - a dozen. It's - keeper "raspberry", vampiric Hella .

  She opened the door of the girl, which was nothing but coquettish lace apron and white cap on his head. On the feet, however, were the golden slipper. By adding together the perfect girl was different, and the only defect in her appearance could be considered purple scar on his neck.

Hella - the name of Greek origin. On the Mediterranean island of Lesbos (not all women who - lesbians!) So-called untimely deaths of girls, who after his death turned into vampires. Obviously, not having enough kissing in their lifetime.

And the word "raspberry", who called his apartment thieves, not connected with the fragrant wild berries. This distorted Hebrew word "Meloon" that is "kennel, flop. "Hotel" is, as well as "hotel" in Hebrew is called of words "Malone".

 Of the suite of Woland most active and nimble - Azazello Corowa Fagott and the cat unforgettable Behemoth . Why is this "charming" (according to Azazello) joker writer called a hippopotamus?

Just the opposite! This hippo is named after the mythological monster Behemoth. About this creation of God says the righteous Job, when he wants to prove his strength and weakness of man (Iov.40 :10-19).

  Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee: he eateth grass as an ox now, his strength in his loins, and its strength in the muscles of his belly turns his tail like a cedar, the sinews of his cover; his legs how copper pipes, his bones are like bars of iron it - the ways of God: he that made him can bring him his sword ...

"Begema" in Hebrew - "a beast, beast." "Behemoth" - the plural of the word "animals". Thousand hp Behemoth - the personification of all wild beasts, the lord of land animals. In demonology that word began to signify a demon carnal desires and bestial tendencies. One of the favorite rebuke this demon - big black cat. And so it goes about Moscow buffoon of Woland's retinue.

  ... The third in this company was known where the cat, huge, like a pig, black as soot or a rook, and with a desperate cavalry mustache.

 Druzhok Behemoth Corowa Fagott Is also not averse to a joke and poyurodstvovat. And the name he too strange. After all, the bassoon - a wooden wind instrument bass timbre. Do not you?

That's so, but in this case no connection with the name of a musical instrument, no. The name of the demon Fagott comes from the Greek word "Fago" - "devour". So ape Koroviev, predator-eater, singer of "dirty" cases. After Woland in the novel itself acts - evil or good - especially not bother. Carries out, so to speak, the general management. Theorizes. A major "work" for it carries the same Koroviev. In the "bond" with Behemoth and Azazel .

Well, that's up to the last improvised Woland got. The final chapter of the novel he appears in its present form: "demon of the waterless desert, the demon-killer." In Arabic, even pre-Islamic, legends and Azazel Avvadon - brothers-killers. The man glanced into the eyes Avvadonu, doomed. The sentence was passed. And Azazel this sentence performs. Just like in the book:

  Baron was paler than Abaddon, who was extremely pale by nature, and then there was something strange. Abaddon was the Baron and the second took off his glasses. At the same moment something flashed in the hands Azazello something quietly popped in his hands, the baron began to fall backwards, crimson blood spurted from his chest ...

In the book of Boris "Azazel" explains the young chef Erast Fandorin, and at the same time, and readers, who this demon.

  Azazel - a fallen angel ... About scapegoats remember? So, it if you've forgotten, there were two. One of redemption God intended, and the second - Azazel, so as not to be angry. The Jews in the Book of Enoch, Azazel taught the people all kinds of junk: men fight and make weapons, women - face paint and corrodes the fetus. In short, the rebellious demon, the spirit of exile.

The Book of Enoch "- is an optional reading in the canon of sacred books is not included. But the story in it about the merits of the fallen angel Azazel humankind very colorful and very reminiscent of the later Greek myths of Prometheus titanium. Azazel in the novel Bulgakov - a murderer and a deceiver. It was sent to Margarita Nikolaevna with a proposal, from which she could not refuse.
