Historical Background

In Christian literature and folklore, Beelzebub as an evil demonic being. The first references to Beelzebub appeared in the Bible as an epithet for Satan/the Devil. In the Apocryphal text, the Testament of Solomon, Beelzebul was a prince of demons who was once a heavenly angel associated with the star Hesperus (the Evening Star). Beelzebul here caused havoc and ruin on earth through tyrants and despots, and caused men to worship demons, priests to lust, and cities to become jealous of other cities, leading to wars. Beelzebub also was the chief lieutenant of Satan and 2nd highest ranking demon in Paradise Lost by John Milton (1667). Beelzebub does not appear in the lists of Demons in grimoire works that comprise Christian demonology, but Baal does. However, Beelzebub did commonly appear as a demon in demonology (just not those indexes), where he was considered the 3rd highest ranking demon (1st was Lucifer, 2nd was Leviathan) or part of an unholy trinity with Lucifer and Astaroth. In late demonology works, namely Dictionnaire Infernal (1818/1863) by Collin de Plancy, Beelzebub was depicited as a gigantic fly with large mandibles and a skull and crossbones on each of its wings (It seems this depiction was the inspiration for the boss Beelzebub in Pandemonium, the last dungeon of Final Fantasy II). Beelzebub (Baal-Zebub) is an intentional mockery of Baal-Zebul ("Prince Baal"), one of the titles for the Canaanite god Baal. It was the demonization of Baal. Beelzebub is Hebrew for "lord of the flies" (Baal- "lord" + zebub "flies", as in fly plural).
