I've seen threads addressing this, but I was not too clear on the matter. From my reading, I feel that Lucifer is a name referring to an exalted place or state. I think that it illustrates the fall of the Babylon king out of pride, can allude to the fall of Satan, and the exalted state of Christ. Lucifer occurs in the KJV by a translation of the (Hebrew heilel ben-schahar) Greek word “herosphorus” into Latin. If I’m not mistaken, it was introduced in the 5th century translation by Jerome. Lucifer is also found as the name for the “morning star” in Roman literature (not referring to Satan). I think that it would be safe to say that “Lucifer” is a proper name for Satan only in Christian tradition. I am looking for comments and opinions about the accepting the term as an exalted state.
