Mental Illness and Possession

Did you know that…..

for many cultures “Possession” by the evil is often the explanation of mental illness for the symptoms of hysterical nature ?

Culturas primitivas

In those cultures the insanity is viewed as an indication of “bewitchment“, and the possessed person may be cruelly punished to protect the community from the evil within him.
