Abstract

This article examines Johann Wier’s theories on the formation of diabolical illusions, linking them to medieval and early modern discourses on dreams and imagination. It highlights the role played by the devil in this process, and thus challenges the vision of Wier as a forerunner of Charcot and modern psychiatry.
