What’s the Market Value of the Devil?

Historically, a lot of folks have tried to sell their soul to the devil.  Very few have actually considered buying him.  Obviously, the first problem is finding a willing broker with the goods to sell.  The second problem is determining his market value.  There are other conundrums such as delivery logistics, but those are probably beyond our theological ken.  And since it’s the Devil we’re talking about, any commercial transaction is likely to wind up in court.  This is exactly what happened in 1329 A.D. near the Isle of Axholme, Yorkshire (which was not actually an island at the time, rather some raised ground surrounded by marshland).  A certain Robert de Roderham tried to buy the devil, according to the 1329 Court Rolls of the Manor of Hatfield.

I thought it was about the going rate for a soul, but they were actually trying to buy the Devil.

I always wondered how people knew that their soul was actually worth anything.
