An excellent book to use in your own personal research is the Encyclopedia of Demons and Demonology. This book explores the dark folklores and religions of the world, with a non-christian view on demons and demonology. Some of the topics covered are demonic histories, cases of possession, demons in popular culture, and demons from religious traditions.
Encyclopedia of Demons and Demonology contains hundreds of entries from a-z with suggested areas of further reading, and 80 black and white photos on demons, reaching from the past into the present. The historical backgrounds are discussed along with their powers and abilities and their roles in our lives. This book also deals with famous cases of possession, discussing various ways to protect from their harm.
As recommended by several readers, it is not the kind of book to get if you are a beginner as the topics that are covered assume that you have some basic occult knowledge to begin with. In all, it is still a good reference to have on hand for your library. I have enjoyed reading this book from time to time throughout the years.
One happy reviewer stated: “This book really goes into fantastic detail about demons, demonology, the devil, and way way more. I love this book and recommend it to anybody looking for information on this topic, this book is exquisite and very well written. I’m looking forward to reading the other books by this author and exploring all the topics they’ve written about. Overall, fantastic!”
