Written by King James I and published in 1597, the original edition of Demonology is widely regarded as one of the most interesting and controversial religious writings in history, yet because it is written in the language of its day, it has been notoriously difficult to understand. Now occult scholar Donald Tyson has modernized and annotated the original text, making this historically important work accessible to contemporary readers. Also deciphered here, for the first time, is the anonymous tract News from Scotland, an account of the North Berwick witch trials over which King James presided. Tyson examines King James’ obsession with witches and their alleged attempts on his life, and offers a knowledgeable and sympathetic look at the details of magick and witchcraft in the Jacobean period. Demonology features historical woodcut illustrations and includes the original old English texts in their entirety. This reference work is the key to an essential source text on seventeenth-century witchcraft and the Scottish witch trials

Written as both a religious and political piece, this work shows the history and foundation of necromancy and demonology. Going back to ancient history, James VI is able to show from a Christian perspective why these arts are derived from dark, bleak sources and also what steps should be taken to persecute and eliminate it.

As the science of man, anthropology was among the most exciting disciplines during the period of intense change from the early modern era to modernity. Where demons had once wielded their power, after 1800, it was now the unlimited shoals of the subconscious that were disseminated. Or did they actually stay right next to each other and within one another?

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Ethnologie / Volkskunde, Note: 1,0, Universität Augsburg, 21 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Dämonen, Vampire, Exorzisten. Man möchte annehmen, dass diese Schlagworte in unserer heutigen technisierten Zeit fast gar keine Bedeutung mehr haben. Man verbindet sie mit dem Aberglauben früherer Epochen des menschlichen Daseins. Wer ebenso denkt unterliegt allerdings einem großen Irrtum. Betrachtet man die heutige Medienlandschaft, so wird man feststellen, dass die Filme, Bücher und Fernsehserien mit Dämonen, Vampiren und Exorzisten gerade seit den letzten 30 Jahren boomen. Natürlich gab es bereits zu Stummfilmzeiten sehr erfolgreiche Horrorfilme wie „Nosferatu“ 1921/22 mit Max Schreck. Dieser Film machte den Schauspieler zu einer Legende, dessen Figur auch der heutigen Jugend noch ein Begriff sein wird. Den ausgefeilten Anfang dieses Trends begründete jedoch der skandalöse Kassenschlager „Der Exorzist“ nach der Romanvorlage von William Peter Blatty, in dem ein Priester um die Seele eines kleinen besessenen Mädchens kämpft. Die heutige Jugend, ja bereits 10jährige Kinder kennen die Serien „Buffy – Im Bann der Dämonen“, „Charmed – Zauberhafte Hexen“ und „Angel – Jäger der Finsternis“ nahezu auswendig. In der US-Serie „Buffy – Im Bann der Dämonen“ geht es um eine Teenagerin, die auserwählt ist als „die Jägerin“ um die Welt von Vampiren und Dämonen zu befreien. Angel, Hauptfigur der gleichnamigen Serie, ist ein Vampir mit Seele der ebenfalls gegen die okkulten Mächte kämpft um die Unschuldigen zu beschützen; und in „Charmed – Zauberhafte Hexen“ gehen drei Hexenschwestern auf Dämonenjagd. Wer diesen Trend als schlechte Horrorschocker herunterspielt, der verkennt das Wesentliche. Das übersinnliche Okkulte ist nicht nur zu einem beliebten Unterhaltungsthema geworden, sondern schon fast ein Teil der modernen Gesellschaft. In dieser Arbeit möchte ich nun dieses Themengebiet einerseits vorstellen und die einzelnen Zusammenhänge entflechten und aufzeigen. Zum anderen möchte ich gerade am Teilgebiet Exorzismus den Bogen zum Seminarthema, unter dem Aspekt außergewöhnlicher Bewusstseinszustände, spannen und die Frage aufgreifen ob Besessenheit existiert oder dies nur eine verkannte psychische Dysfunktion ist.

James begins the book: The fearefull aboundinge at this time in this countrie, of these detestable slaves of the Devil, the Witches or enchaunters, hath moved me (beloved reader) to dispatch in post, this following treatise of mine (...) to resolve the doubting (...) both that such assaults of Satan are most certainly practised, and that the instrument thereof merits most severely to be punished. The work is in the form of a dialogue between characters called "Philomathes" and "Epistemon". In writing the book, King James was influenced by his personal involvement in the North Berwick witch trials (1590).

Daemonologie-in full Daemonologie, In Forme of a Dialogue, Divided into three Books: By the High and Mighty Prince, James &c.-was written and published in 1597 by King James VI of Scotland (later also James I of England) as a philosophical dissertation on contemporary necromancy and the historical relationships between the various methods of divination used from ancient black magic. This included a study on demonology and the methods demons used to bother troubled men while touching on topics such as werewolves and vampires. It was a political yet theological statement to educate a misinformed populace on the history, practices and implications of sorcery and the reasons for persecuting a witch in a Christian society under the rule of canonical law. This book is believed to be one of the main sources used by William Shakespeare in the production of Macbeth. Shakespeare attributed many quotes and rituals found within the book directly to the Weird Sisters, yet also attributed the Scottish themes and settings referenced from the trials in which King James was involved.

In 1590 three hundred Scottish 'witches' were tried for plotting the murder of their King, James VI of Scotland (soon to be James I of England). James is known to have suffered from a morbid fear of violent death, and the trial heightened his anxiety over this apparently treasonous 'un-Christian' sect, and stimulated him to study the whole subject of witchcraft. 'Daemonologie' is the result of this royal research, detailing his opinions on the topic in the form of a Socratic dialogue between the sceptic Philomathes and witch-averse Epistemon, who reveals many aspects of witch-craft. The book consists of three sections, on magic, on sorcery and witchcraft, and on spirits and ghosts, and ends with a lurid account of the North Berwick witch trials, based on the evidence of Dr John Fian, the alleged head of the coven, whose 'confession' was obtained with the aid of thumbscrews, the Boot, and by the ripping out of his fingernails.
