He traces the influence such experiences have had in helping to build up such beliefs as those in the Incubus, Vampire, Werewolf, Devil and Witches. A section is devoted to the part played in mythology by the idea of the Mare, and the relationship between these beliefs and nightmare experiences is discussed. The author maintains that study of these superstitions, which are essentially a caricature of religion, throw light on the unconscious significance of religious beliefs themselves, and on this basis he expounds a theory concerning the essential nature of religion.
