Influential People

Nicholas Oresme

  • Believed melancholy was a potential cause of behaviors believed to be the result of demons.
  • Believed any evidence that that existed showing mental illness was the result of demons and sorcery was actually the result of those afflicted with mental illness being tortured (Zilboorg & Henry, 1941).

  1. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Internet explorer. Excellent Blog!

  2. I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
