Demonology and Devil Lore

Topic: #Demons #Demonology #Vampire #Spirits #Gods
Welcome listeners. Today I’m going over Demonology and Demon Lore by Moncure Daniel Conway. This is a continuation of the Demons lore series that I do here, where I narrate his works, and add value where I can – or snip out content that just frankly has aged so poorly that no-one would get the references. For today’s episode the author spends more time on Winter and what Winter means to cultures, specifically how a culture draws on winter as an extreme to influence perception of demons and the devil.

Moncure does enjoy spending time on the etymology of what makes a demon what it is, and spends the first half covering off what winter is, and the mid to second half on demon references. So you love your research, love your understandings of culture’s perception of seasons in relation to Gods and demons, then you’ll enjoy this episode. So sit back, relax, and let me share some unique demon lore all the way back in from 1879.

Now, turn the lights off, the sound up, and get ready to…learn something different.
