Syriac work called The Cave of Treasures, translated by Sebastian Brock (Early Christian/late Jewish traditions preserved in Syrian. Gives a good framework for reading St. Ephrem the Syrian).

Many people are starting to recognize that our materialist and secular worldview is blinding us to certain realities that lie beyond our basic senses. This is coming more to light its seems to me as the current upswing in occultism and the Alien Savior Religions are moving through our culture and the world.
As we become a more pagan nation the invisible forces/entities that have languished are now invited into peoples lives or sought out either purposefully or accidentally. Evil is increasing as the fruits of abortion, pornography and moral relativism become dogma in our culture.
Demons do indeed exist and they harm people.
Exorcists perform exorcisms on possessed people around the world on a regular basis.
The video above from Jonathan Pageau and the one below (wonderful accent, listen closely!) take us different directions in looking at the myths and possible realities. Enjoy!
Reverend Robert Kirk and the Fairies
"Minister Robert Kirk (9 December 1644 – 14 May 1692) was an author who translated the Psalms and other portions of the Bible into Scottish Gaelic. However, it is the belief that he was kidnapped by the fairies that keep him well-remembered so many years after his death.
As did most Scots in the 17th century, Robert Kirk strongly believed in the reality of The Good People. They are an invisible race that Kirk claimed were of nature halfway between that of angels and that of mankind..." from the article: Reverend Robert Kirk and the Fairies
