Abstract

The author analyzes the historical changes of human notions and perceptions about demonic creatures from ancient times till the present days. The world of demons has always been “densly populated”, although one sort of its “inhabitants” could be replaced with another or could be described in another way by different generations in different historical periods. It is stressed that people believe in demons even today, although “modern” demons can have a quite different appearance and different kinds of activities, especially in big cities.
