Demons in the City of Angels - Demonology - Netflix
Demonology is the study of demons or beliefs about demons, especially the methods used to summon and control them. The original sense of “demon”, from the time of Homer onward, was a benevolent being, but in English the name now holds connotations of malevolence. (To keep the distinction, when referring to the word in its original Greek meaning English may use the spelling “Daemon” or “Daimon”.) Demons, when regarded as spirits, may belong to either of the classes of spirits recognized by primitive animism. That is to say, they may be human, or non-human, separable souls, or discarnate spirits which have never inhabited a body. A sharp distinction is often drawn between these two classes, notably by the Melanesians, several African groups, and others. The Islamic jinn, for example, are not reducible to modified human souls. At the same time these classes are frequently conceived as producing identical results, e.g. diseases. The word demonology is from Greek δαίμων, daimōn, “divinity, divine power, god”; and -λογία, -logia.
