Opera molto rara sugli spiriti. Thorndike VIII, 582: “Johann Heinrich Decker of Hamburg conceded that the power of imagination was great, especially in melancholy persons, but held that specters were nothing but a sport of Satan. Spirits properly speaking were invisible, but specters were bodies assumed by demons. They were rarely seen in Holland and England, so that the inhabitants of those countries doubted their existence. But in Holstein, Iceland, Lapland and the New World they were often seen.”
