Explanation of the Book:

**WINNER OF THE 2014 THRILLER AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL** Fans of The Historian won’t be able to put down this spellbinding literary horror story in which a Columbia professor must use his knowledge of demonic mythology to rescue his daughter from the Underworld. Professor David Ullman is among the world’s leading authorities on demonic literature, with special expertise in Milton’s Paradise Lost. Not that David is a believer—he sees what he teaches as a branch of the imagination and nothing more. So when the mysterious Thin Woman arrives at his office and invites him to travel to Venice and witness a “phenomenon,” he turns her down. She leaves plane tickets and an address on his desk, advising David that her employer is not often disappointed. That evening, David’s wife announces she is leaving him. With his life suddenly in shambles, he impulsively whisks his beloved twelve-year-old daughter, Tess, off to Venice after all. The girl has recently been stricken by the same melancholy moods David knows so well, and he hopes to cheer her up and distract them both from the troubles at home. But what happens in Venice will change everything. First, in a tiny attic room at the address provided by the Thin Woman, David sees a man restrained in a chair, muttering, clearly insane… but could he truly be possessed? Then the man speaks clearly, in the voice of David’s dead father, repeating the last words he ever spoke to his son. Words that have left scars—and a mystery—behind. When David rushes back to the hotel, he discovers Tess perched on the roof’s edge, high above the waters of the Grand Canal. Before she falls, she manages to utter a final plea: Find me. What follows is an unimaginable journey for David Ullman from skeptic to true believer. In a terrifying quest guided by symbols and riddles from the pages of Paradise Lost, David must track the demon that has captured his daughter and discover its name. If he fails, he will lose Tess forever.

Explanation of the Book:

'The fables of witchcraft have taken so fast hold and deepe root in the heart of man, that few or none can indure with patience the hand and correction of God.' Reginald Scot, whose words these are, published his remarkable book The Discoverie of Witchcraft in 1584. England's first major work of demonology, witchcraft and the occult, the book was unashamedly sceptical. It is said that so outraged was King James VI of Scotland by the disbelieving nature of Scot's work that, on James' accession to the English throne in 1603, he ordered every copy to be destroyed. Yet for all the anger directed at Scot, and his scorn for Stuart orthodoxy about wiches, the paradox was that his detailed account of sorcery helped strengthen the hold of European demonologies in England while also inspiring the distinctively English tradition of secular magic and conjuring. Scot's influence was considerable. Shakespeare drew on The Discoverie of Witchcraft for his depiction of the witches in Macbeth. So too did fellow-playwright Thomas Middleton in his tragi-comedy The Witch. Recognising Scot's central importance in the history of ideas, Philip Almond places his subject in the febrile context of his age, examines the chief themes of his work and shows why his writings became a sourcebook for aspiring magicians and conjurors for several hundred years. England's First Demonologist makes a notable contribution to a fascinating but unjustly neglected topic in the study of Early Modern England and European intellectual history.

Explanation of the Book:

Demonology – the intellectual study of demons and their powers – contributed to the prosecution of thousands of witches. But how exactly did intellectual ideas relate to prosecutions? Recent scholarship has shown that some of the demonologists’ concerns remained at an abstract intellectual level, while some of the judges’ concerns reflected popular culture. This book brings demonology and witch-hunting back together, while placing both topics in their specific regional cultures. The book’s chapters, each written by a leading scholar, cover most regions of Europe, from Scandinavia and Britain through to Germany, France and Switzerland, and Italy and Spain. By focusing on various intellectual levels of demonology, from sophisticated demonological thought to the development of specific demonological ideas and ideas within the witch trial environment, the book offers a thorough examination of the relationship between demonology and witch-hunting. Demonology and Witch-Hunting in Early Modern Europe is essential reading for all students and researchers of the history of demonology, witch-hunting and early modern Europe.

Explanation of the Book:

Deliver Us from Evil is the first book to introduce demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren and their unique occupation as ghost hunters to the world. The Warrens are known as the original ghost hunters. Together they've been investigating paranormal activity for over fifty-five years throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Scotland, and Europe, to name only a few places. This book is not entirely about exorcism and many of these stories do not conclude with happy endings. Lorraine describes the existence of supernatural forces and how these supernatural events follow a certain pattern. Ed says it s best described as a book that teaches you about the reality of paranormal or supernatural forces rather than citing an easy route to deliverance. The title of the book is a phrase taken from the Lord's Prayer Lead us not into temptation, but Deliver Us from Evil. The case studies chronicled in this book are a kind of universality of evil spirits, how they operate and what they do. The cases in this book are the first published cases taken from the files of Ed Warren, a demonologist, now deceased, and his wife, Lorraine Warren, an active clairvoyant and medium. These paranormal investigations are filled with tragic possessions, ghostly infestations and demonic obsessions. Ed, who is also an exorcist, does not ignore the potential potency of curses, spells, voodoo dolls, cult ceremonies, demon possession or other invading entities, especially for those who have opened themselves up to supernatural infestation. Although rare, some satanic rituals have led to murder or death. From a psychic researcher s point of view, Lorraine points out how spirits move from infestation, the first stage and signs of ghost and/or spirit haunting (knocking, magic whispering and creeping sounds), the mildest state (shadow ghosts and teleportation of objects), to the more dangerous obsession and finally, the last and worse stage, possession. The only difference between obsession and the last stage, possession, is one of degree. Ed describes these experiences in an entirely no-holds-barred way. If you study these stories and these phenomena carefully, you find that one opens the door to infestation, obsession and possession by careless fixation on the occult, playing with the Ouija board and toying with Satanism or black magic. The most dangerous game and archetypical connection is the Ouija board. According to Ed, "This object, often regarded as a harmless toy, is the way that ordinary people are often lured into making a dangerous connection to the other world." Of the fourteen cases discussed, five are initiated by contact with an Ouija board. The Warrens have tenaciously pursued their careers as ghost hunters for so many years and witnessed people that have been tragically affected by apparitions, ghost whisperings, brutal and unexplained explosions, strange footsteps in the night, uninvited incursions into the privacy of their bedrooms, including various physical attacks. All cases in this book are prior to 1973. Since the first publication, the Warrens have become known worldwide because of supernatural investigations such as West Point Military Academy, the Amityville Horror murder, the Haunting in Connecticut, the Brookfield Demon Murder, Jack and Janet Smurl, Dudley town, Bill Ramsey the Werewolf, and the Enfield Poltergeist, to name a few. Lorraine appears on A&E's Paranormal State TV series.

Explanation of the Book:

Witches, ghosts, fairies. Premodern Europe was filled with strange creatures, with the devil lurking behind them all. But were his powers real? Did his powers have limits? Or were tales of the demonic all one grand illusion? Physicians, lawyers, and theologians at different times and places answered these questions differently and disagreed bitterly. The demonic took many forms in medieval and early modern Europe. By examining individual authors from across the continent, this book reveals the many purposes to which the devil could be put, both during the late medieval fight against heresy and during the age of Reformations. It explores what it was like to live with demons, and how careers and identities were constructed out of battles against them – or against those who granted them too much power. Together, contributors chart the history of the devil from his emergence during the 1300s as a threatening figure – who made pacts with human allies and appeared bodily – through to the comprehensive but controversial demonologies of the turn of the seventeenth century, when European witch-hunting entered its deadliest phase. This book is essential reading for all students and researchers of the history of the supernatural in medieval and early modern Europe.
