By: F. Levine Judaism developed a very rich demonology which was often fed by the cultures that surrounded the Jewish communities throughout the world.

While many of these supernatural creatures were evil or at least malevolent, what I find particularly fascinating is the very un-Christian notion that not all demons were anti-God, nor were all sent by Satan.
