ABOUT  WEREWOLVES 

 

Note:

Hebrews 5:14 teaches that mature Christians should be capable of discerning between good and evil, between true doctrine and the
doctrine of devils. The publications included below are intended to provide the diligent truth-seeker with a thorough understanding of this topic. We at Inquisitive Christianity do not endorse all of the content included in these publications. After all, it is a rare gift to discover an author with which one has no disagreement. Nevertheless, we believe that these publications offer valuable information for those who seek the truth and are spiritually mature enough to exercise discernment.

The Book of the Were-Wolf by Sabine Baring-Gould

         FREE ONLINE-TEXT

Sabine Baring-Gould (1834-1924) was  a Vicar in the Church of England in Devon, an archaeologist, folklorist, historian, and a prolific author.  His book is one of the most cited references about werewolves.  The Book of the Were-Wolf takes a rationalistic approach to the subject.  The book starts off with a straightforward academic review of the literature of shape-shifting; however, starting with Chapter XI, the narrative takes a strange turn into sensationalistic 'true crime' case-studies of cannibals, grave desecrators, and blood fetishists, which have a tenuous connection with lycanthropy.  Nevertheless, the first ten chapters of this book constitute an essential work on the subject of werewolves.
