"Terrestrial devils are those lares, genii, fauns, satyrs, wood-nymphs, foliots, fairies, Robin Goodfellows, trolli, etc., which as they are most conversant with men, so they do them most harm. Some think it was they alone that keep that the heathen people in awe of old, and had so many idols and temples erected to them. Of this range Dagon amongst the Philistines, Bel amongst the Babylonians... Isis and Osiris amongst the Egyptians..."
- Robert Burton, The Anatomy of Melancholy (1621)
