520 8  "This book examines the fairies, demons, and nature 
       spirits haunting the margins of Christendom from late-
       antique Egypt to early modern Scotland to contemporary 
       Amazonia. Contributions from anthropologists, folklorists,
       historians and religionists explore Christian strategies 
       of encompassment and marginalization, and the ̀small gods'
       undisciplined tendency to evade such efforts at exorcism. 
       Lurking in forest or fairy-mound, chuckling in dark 
       corners of the home or of the demoniac's body, the small 
       gods both define and disturb the borders of a religion 
       that is endlessly syncretistic and in endless, active 
       denial of its own syncretism. The book will be of interest
       to students of folklore, indigenous Christianity, the 
       history of science, and comparative religion."-- Back
