The Encyclopedia of Demons and Demonology - Rosemary Ellen Guiley

Paperback - Very Good Condition


Beliefs about the conflict between good and evil can be found in every culture, mythical tradition, and religion throughout history. In many cases, the source of evil has been personified as demons or devils. In many belief systems, both are considered to be real entities operating outside the boundaries of the physical world to torment people or lead them astray. In some traditions, demons are believed to be the direct opposite of angels, challenging the forces of good. Real or not, demons are at the heart of many fascinating beliefs and traditions, some of which are widely held today.
