A.P. Sylvia – Origins of Vampires
Various images come to mind when we think of vampires, such as fangs, blood, bats, and so on. However, our modern notions about vampires are informed by pop culture. There are actually many surprising differences between the vampire imagery of today and the folkloric beliefs of the past. A.P. Sylvia explores our modern notions about vampires, trait by trait, and attempts to determine their origins.
A.P. Sylvia has long been interested in supernatural beliefs and their origins. He has explored the essential texts of vampire folklore and has visited various vampire-related locations.
