I take a shot at it. The crucial piece is the staircase. We are looking down or descending to either mans downfall or to hell which all the clues point to.

From the other posts from this I think the answer is a "What" and it's "Dante's Inferno".

Great initiative Jason

I too think the clues point towards the Descend into Inferno from Dante's Divine Comedy.
  1. Staircase is descending
  2. Blazing fire is an inferno
  3. Dante Alighieri
  4. Richard Wagner (composer of Faust) was the (future) son in law of Franz Liszt (composer of Dante symphony that was dedicated to Richard Wagner).
  5. Christian devotion

  3. Dante (Liszt writes symphony based on Dante's Inferno)
  4. Richard Wagner (son-in-law of Liszt)
  5. St. Francis (Liszt composes "Legend of St. Francis of Assisi")

Admittedly my knowledge of Catholic saints is a bit hazy but that is what I think as well.

All the red are right
Now it should be clear who, what or when I'm looking for...
However, what about the first and last picture?
