One of the several terms Saint Paul (Ephesians 6) applies to the evil spirits, whose leader is the "prince of darkness". As a consequence of original sin the world had been given over to the "world-rulers of this darkness," but by the redeeming death of Christ it was bought back to the kingdom of God and of light.
