A fascinating study of the paranormal phenomena associated with the experience of the incubus. The author expertly uses his scholarly knowledge and thorough research in folklore, psychology, pathology, to deliver a deep and minute study of the real origin of the incubus experience. Long relegated to the realm of superstitious belief, this experience is now acknowledged as a recurring element not only in history but also in current psychological cases, at the origin of many speculations. This study attempts to bring these mysteries to light.  

Volume includes an appendix with a survey. Bibliography included.
