Esoterica: Are Ghosts Really Demons?

0 Replies, 87 Views



Quote: With the dismissal of Purgatory, early Protestant theologians faced a metaphysical dilemma: How do ghosts and spirits fit into their new theological ecosystem? In 1569 Ludwig Lavater would publish De Spectris (On Ghosts), a text that would go on to become the most popular textbook on ghosts for several generations, including William Shakespeare.
'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'

- Bertrand Russell
