When Anselm criticized the concept of the Devil's rights, what he questioned was the idea that God should choose to respect the Devil with justice in depriving him of his possession of human kind. The idea that God elected to overcome the Devil with justice characterized much early medieval thinking on the issue of the defeat of the Devil, and implies that the Devil held a right of possession over humanity. It is in this way that we should understand the notion of the Devil's rights. 32 It is in sermon writing that this theme was exploited most extensively probably because, whether popular or clerical, sermons needed to fill out with narrative and drama the more abstract arguments from theological writing.

Page 9 The place of the Devil is clearly important in Augustine's formulation, and the implications of conceiving the redemption in this way need to be examined. Augustine's argument does not cite positive law, but exploits the connotations of the words iustitia and potentia, and in this way the conquest of the Devil is conceived in recognizably human terms.

There has been a tendency to regard the use of the idea in literature as something of an anachronism, an inheritance from patristic writing which, in the mainstream of theology, had been displaced by later developments. The main sources for this assumption are R. W. Southern's highly influential book The Making of the Middle Ages, published in 1953, and an article by Timothy Fry published in 1951, 'The Unity of the Ludus Coventriae'. In order to explain the emergence of the emphasis on the humanity of Christ and the growth of affective piety in medieval devotion, Southern drew a distinction between formulations of the redemption before and after Anselm's Cur Deus Homo, which is generally recognized as the first work devoted solely to the doctrine of the redemption.
