Walter Scott (1779-1858), President and Theological Tutor at Airedale College in Bradford, delivered a series of lectures on the occult at the Congregational Library in 1841. This volume is a collection of those lectures, which use scriptural and testimonial evidence to evaluate the existence of evil spirits and 'fallen angels'.
