There are many creatures that inspire folklore. Some have existed for thousands of years, while others are more recent incarnations. Among the most enduring creatures of the past are demons. These creatures are as old as the Jewish faith, perhaps older, and hold a special place in the lives of humans. This book delves into the oldest demon folktales, explores the ways different cultures have experienced demons, and examines how demons are treated today.

DEMONOLOGY: A Study on Demons By definition, a demon is a spirit: a supernatural force owned, empowered, energized, motivated and controlled by the devil otherwise known as Satan. The sole objective and function of demons is to carry out the whimsical, nefarious, and diabolical atrocities of its owner and master. It is an accepted given that all spirits are non-corporeal, and in order for them to manifest themselves, to appear, or to effectively function, of necessity they must take on, and clothe themselves with some easily recognizable physical form or body, chiefly that of a human.

Are God, angels, and demons really invisible? Or can the spirits be seen with human eyes, through the lens of Church Ethics? The gift of discerning of spirits is indispensible to the study of church ethics. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), wrote two sets of Rules for Discerning of Spirits in his Spiritual Exercises in the early 1500s. He taught how the church can receive from God the gift to see otherwise invisible angels, demons, and the Holy Spirit. Ignatius' views were influenced by John Cassian, Jacobus de Voragine, Ludolph of Saxony, and Thomas a Kempis. Ignatius' Rules are exegeted in dialogue with contemporary scholars Karl Rahner, Hugo Rahner, Piet Penning de Vries, Jules Toner, and Timothy Gallagher, and applied to one study of ecclesial ethics in the narrative theology of Samuel Wells. A four-step Ignatian "pneumato-ethical method" is developed, which any analyst can follow to see the spirits, by consolation/desolation, consent, manifestation, and pneumato-ethics. This method revolutionizes how we study ecclesiology, soteriology, missiology/world religions, liturgy, worship, Eucharist, hermeneutics, homiletics, pastoral counseling, church history, and politics. The spirits are not invisible at all. They can be clearly discerned through the lens of ecclesial ethics.
