The Book of Were-Wolves
by Sabine Baring-Gould
An analytical study of lycanthropy, which comprises not only an analysis of the very phenomenon’s mythological origins and various pertinent mediaeval stories, but also a modern-day based explanation of a fascinating quasi-imaginative, quasi-realistic myth.
“Sabine Baring-Gould (1834-1924) was a Vicar in the Church of England in Devon, an archaeologist, folklorist, historian and a prolific author. Baring-Gould was also a bit eccentric. He reputedly taught classes with a pet bat on his shoulder. He is best known for writing the hymn 'Onward Christian Soldiers'.
This book is one of the most cited references about werewolves. The Book of the Were-Wolf takes a rationalistic approach to the subject.”
