Lycanthropy is a mysterious subject. Ancient belief in lycanthropy was widespread, and it still exists in parts of the world. Literatures all over the world have tales of men changing to animals. Werewolves are often related to demons, devils, blood, and the full moon. In this classic study, Sabine Baring-Gould, a historian, examines the literature about this matter from a serious perspective.

Audible Editor Reviews

Sabine Baring-Gould, a priest and scholar who wrote, among others, the hymn "Onward Christian Soldiers", also wove this tapestry of anecdotes, mythology, and serious accounts on the existence of werewolves: half-man, half-wolf, fiendish creatures. Bernard Clark performs this audio, affecting the cold sardonic tone of someone who, like the narrator in the introduction, ignores the warnings of frightened villagers, and clutches a stick for defense when he finds himself alone later that same night. Baring-Gould finds no hard evidence for the existence of the beast but the traces he finds through widely varied sites of geography and time will pique the interest of anyone with a taste for the supernatural and unknown.

Publisher's Summary

Lycanthropy is a mysterious subject. Ancient belief in lycanthropy was widespread, and it still exists in parts of the world. Literatures all over the world have tales of men changing to animals. Werewolves are often related to demons, devils, blood, and the full moon. In the Middle Ages the church condemned lycanthropy as a form of sorcery and often ruthlessly punished the supposed offenders. In this classic study, Sabine Baring-Gould, a historian, examines the literature about this matter from a serious perspective.
