Among other figures, Willy Wiedmann has portrayed the story of Sarah, whose seven bridegrooms all died on their wedding nights because she was beloved by a demon. Sarah later marries the son of Tobias, who shares his name, and thanks to the archangel Gabriel the fate of both families takes a turn for the better.
