Lycanthropy

Tangentially related to Supernatural, I guess...

I love the concept of lycanthropy. It's fascinating to me. This is an absolutely excellent talk, by Deborah Hyde, about the history of lyncathropy in Europe.



All it needed was to end on my favourite Farley Mowat quote. Sadly, Ms. Hyde doesn't appear to know it, so allow me:

We have doomed the wolf not for what it is, but for what we deliberately and mistakenly preceive it to be - the mythologized epitome of a savage ruthless killer, which is, in reality, no more than the reflected image of ourselves. 
-Never Cry Wolf, Farley Mowat
