Montague Summers

a.k.a. Augustus Montague Summers

Author Code: EAMS

Born: Apr. 10, 1880 - Clifton, Bristol, England

Died: Aug. 10, 1948 - Richmond, Surrey, England

Educated at Clifton College and Trinity College, Oxford, where he studied theology, Summers graduated in 1905 and proceeded to Lichfield Theological College where he continued his studies. He was ordained a deacon in 1908, but never received higher orders because of his interest in the occult. His first book, Antinous and Other Poems, was published in 1907. He converted to Catholicism in 1909 and, although never ordained as a priest,passed himself off as one. He spent several years as an English and Latin teacher and then turned to writing full-time. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 1916. Summers was an eccentric, but nevertheless not without talent. He was interested in the occult, vampires, werewolves and witchcraft. He edited the plays of Aphra Behn, Dryden and Congreve and was a founding member of the Phoenix, a society dedicated to the performance of those works. His own works included Lourdes (1904), Memoir of Aphra Behn (1914), Jane Austen (1919), Demonology (1926), The Vampire: His Kith and Kin (1928), The Vampire in Europe (1929), The Werewolf (1933), A Popular History of Witchcraft (1937), Edward II (1940) and Witchcraft and Black Magic (1946).
