I am sure you have read it but if not The Origin of Satan: How Christians Demonized Jews, Pagans, and Heretics by Elaine Pagels is a great read.
I saw her speak at Agnes Scott just after I read it. She has done alot of work the the Gnostic texts that is very good as well.

Russell's whole series is a really good read IMO. I have them all here if you want to borrow them. I also have "A History of the Devil" by Gerald Messadie which is quite good. And "Anti-Christ: Two Thousand Years of the Human Fascination with Evil" by Bernard McGinn. Don't know if any of this is relevant to what you are working on? If so, I'll lend them to you tomorrow when I see you.
