1928. In the present work, Mr. Montague endeavored to set forth what might be termed the philosophy of vampirism, and however ghastly and macabre they may appear, he felt that here one must not tamely shrink from a careful and detailed consideration of the many cognate passions and congruous circumstances which, there can be no reasonable doubt, have throughout the ages played no impertinent and no trivial but a very vital and very memorable part in consolidating the vampire legend, and in perpetuating the vampire tradition among the darker and more secret mysteries of belief that prevail in the heart of man.

THE VAMPIRE, His Kith and Kin examined the reasons for the old belief in Vampirism, its growth and dissemination in many lands, and its crystallization into a permanent and determinate legend. This new volume, The Vampire in Europe, uniform with the other, deals with the subject from a historical point of view and presents the evidence which gave rise to the theories. This evidence, drawn from little-known authors, musty chronicles, and the obscurer occultists, is in many cases derived from official sources, civil and ecclesiastical. The first chapter treats of Vampirism in ancient Greece and Rome. Accounts of the extraordinary outbreaks of Vampirism in England during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries have been gathered from Geoffrey of Monmouth and William of Newburgh. Particular attention is paid to the alleged irritation which gave rise to so much literature in the early eighteenth century, while the curious situation in modern Greece is fully discussed. Included in this critical edition are the authoritative text, rare contextual and source materials, illustrations, criticism, contemporary reviews, and Greek and Latin translations. A biographical note is also included.

Helmut Birkhan feiert seinen 60. Geburtstag, ein willekomen Anlaß, ihm diese Festschrift zu widmen. Seinen breitgefächerten Interessen Rechnung zu tragen, war die Grundidee, denn noch bevor die Begriffe «Interdisziplinarität» und «Mediävistik» in aller Munde waren, bestimmten sie die Haltung Helmut Birkhans. Daher der Untertitel «Grenzenlose Mediävistik», der sich angesichts des Birkhanschen Forschungseifers geradezu anbietet, wiewohl er manchen als Anmaßung erschien. Das große Ansehen, das Helmut Birkhan genießt, und die verschiedenen Disziplinen, in denen er tätig ist, lösten einen großen Zustrom von Beiträgen aus. Die einzelnen Artikel wurden in thematischen Gruppen zusammengefaßt.
