Werewolf Stories

"Famous among the Ancient Greeks and classical literature is the story of Lycaon from which lycanthropy likely gets its name. Lycaon is said to have been a cannibal, and turned into a wolf as a result of his crime."

"Herodotus, the father of History, wrote of a people called the Neuri who would turn into wolves every nine years. "

"Ancient Rome also has many tales of werewolves with the pages of Ovid’s Metamorphoses to Gaius Petronius’ Satyricon, which feature stories about men who turned into wolves with Metamorphoses"

"Werewolves in European lore are very prevalent with the belief that most werewolves were in league with Satan, and cursed. The medieval French poem, Bisclavret tells of a man who turned into a wolf every week."
