About the Author

P. G. Maxwell-Stuart is a Research Fellow in the Department of History at the University of Aberdeen and an honorary lecturer in the Department of History in the University of St. Andrews


'This volume represents an alliance between two meticulous bibliophiles, the demonologist del Rio and his editor Maxwell-Stuart, who has patiently identified most of the ancient, medieval and early modern texts upon which he relied for most of his source material. This translation makes accessible a major trove of source material as well as a famous polemical work.' Professor Ronald Hutton, Ecclesiastical History
