True or False Possession: How to Distinguish the Demonic from the Demented

  • Description: In “True or False Possession,” renowned French neuropsychiatrist Jeanne Lhermitte examined the differences between people suffering from mental illness and people suffering from genuine demonic possession. Lhermitte said that genuine possessions evade explanations and exceed the competence of even the wisest physicians, and must be handled by the Church. With sober clarity and reserve, he reviewed the detailed clinical records of scores of cases that startled and alarmed our forefathers, as well as the cases of many souls he examined personally: unfortunate souls judged possessed, who manifested symptoms ranging from the picturesque to the loathsome and pitiful. The book was originally published in 1963, and was re-released last year with minor edits and a new introduction by Aaron Kheriaty, MD, the Director of Residency Training in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California, Irvine. Aaron joins us.
