A published writer, a 4th book on sibylline & cabalistic topics "Eros & Evil" is not for the faint of heart or those who'd gasp in horror of the psychopornopathologic exposition at dissection of intrinsic essences of Mythoi transformed to Demonology by Christianity, imprimis Catholicism which, as Kings are prone to do, unseat one another & redefined all existing non-Christian gods as devils or demons, expecially "cacodemons," the evil type. So, the Devil's proper garb was clerical - during this "Witch Mania & Delusion" period.
Just as succinct definition of mytho or Mythoi is imprecise -- so to is characterization of protagonists in demonology. The witch & devil kindred reigning from the 1400's to the 1800's included demonic incubi (male) & succubi (female) who stood accused by common folk & clergy of sexual interaction of diverse forms with humans - descriptions of their various presentations in demonic, ethereal or human form, anatomies, apparition, origins, murders, offspring, seminal habits, anthropophagi, scatology, possession, orgies, cruelities, convent invasions, drugs, etc. We are given the list of remedies to combat witches' magic as confession, shedding of tears, signing of cross, humility, pilgramages, meditation, & large church contributions to help cure erectile dysfunction & sterility, etc. plus a list of preventive measures as use of holy water, prayers, horseshoes, garlic, incense burning & passage of gas.
The book concludes with detailed Appendices listing "Celebrities of Demonology" & Sinistrari's "Demoniality." For some the book may be a difficult read.
