A demon is a paranormal, often malevolent being prevalent in religion , occultism , literature , and folklore . The original Greek word daimon does not carry the negative connotation initially understood by implementation of the Koine δαιμόνιον (daimonion), [ 1 ] and later ascribed to any cognate words sharing the root. In Ancient Near Eastern religions as well as in the Abrahamic traditions , including ancient and medieval Christian demonology , a demon is considered an unclean spirit , more specifically an evil angel , which may cause demonic possession , calling for an exorcism . In Western occultism and Renaissance magic , which grew out of an amalgamation of Greco-Roman magic , Jewish demonology , and Christian tradition, [ 2 ] a demon is a spiritual entity that may be conjured and controlled.
