   This is Christic imagery, too.  From the temptation in the desert, where
the Devil quotes scripture about angels bearing up the messiah if he should
fall.  IIRC, Tib casts demons out of the computer system, no?  

   I slapped my head when I finally saw that Typhon's temptations of
Severian are just a replay of the temptations of Christ. (Food, casting
from a height, all the cities stretched out before you if you submit
to me.  Doh!)
