Binsfeld’s Classification of Demons

Binsfeld's Classification of Demons - Supernatural Fan Site

Peter Binsfeld was a Medieval demonologist and Jesuit priest who lived in Trier, Germany, and died there of the plague in 1598. He was involved in the witch hunts of the time and wrote "The Confession of Warlocks and Witches", which discussed the confessions of alleged witches, and argued that torture did not affect the veracity of confessions.

In 1589, Peter Binsfeld paired each of the Seven Deadly Sins with a demon, who tempted people by means of the associated sin. According to Binsfeld's Classification of Demons, the pairings are as follows:

Lust: Asmodeus
Gluttony: Beelzebub
Greed: Mammon
Sloth: Belphegor
Wrath: Satan
Envy: Leviathan
Pride: Lucifer

He also theorised that other demons invoke sin, for instance Lilithand her offspring, the incubi and succubi, invoke lust. The succubi sleep with men in order to impregnate themselves so that they can bear more demons. The incubi sleep with women to lead them into sin and to impregnate them with demon spawn.

WENT TO A PARANORMAL CONVENTION TWO WEEKS AGO,. LEARNED MORE THAN I CARED TO ABOUT GHOSTS, DEMONS AND VOODOO. LEARNED THAT YOU CAN TAKE A SPIRIT HOME WITH YOU FROM A HUNT. THEY CAN ATTACH THEMSELVES TO YOU AND GO WHEREEVER YOU GO. NOT SURE I WANT TO GO ON A HUNT ANYMORE AND AM AFRAID THAT I ALREADY DO SO. I NOW HAVE A SHADOW FIGURE IN MY HOUSE THAT EVEN MY DOG SENSES AND BARKS AT WHENEVER IT IS AROUND.. SCARY! DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET RID OF IT BUT AT LEAST IT HASN'T DONE ANYTHING BAD AS YET.
