The Ancient Concept of the Vampire. A look into the Origin of the Vampire in this documentary created/narrated by A.Christie.
Vampirism has existed for millennia. Cultures such as the Mesopotamian’s, Hebrews, Ancient Greeks, and Romans all had tales of demons and spirits which are considered precursors to modern vampires.
Despite the occurrence of vampire-like creatures in these ancient civilizations, the folklore for the entity known today as the vampire originates almost exclusively from early 18th-century southeastern Europe.
In most cases, vampires are revenants of evil beings, or witches, but they can also be created by a malevolent spirit possessing a corpse or by being bitten by a vampire.
Tales of supernatural beings of this variety have been found in nearly every culture around the world for many centuries. The term vampire did not exist in ancient times, similar activities were attributed to demons or spirits even the devil himself was considered synonymous with the vampire. Almost every nation has associated the Vampire with some kind of revenant or demon, or in some cases a deity.
