The Vampire, His Kith and Kin, Montague Summers
Augustus Montague Summers (1880 – 1948) was an English clergyman and author most famous for his studies on vampires, witches and werewolves—all of which he believed to be very much real. He also wrote the first English translation of the infamous 15th-century witch hunter's manual, the “Malleus Maleficarum”, in 1928. In The Vampire, His Kith and Kin, Summers discusses the vampire phenomena from a Catholic point of view, offering an a veritably academic study of the subject.
