Le Cauchemar (The Nightmare) - (1781) Henry Fuseli


In medieval legend, an incubus (plural incubi; from Latin incubare, "to lie upon") is a demon in male form supposed to lie upon sleepers, especially on women in order to have sexual intercourse with them. A female version was called a succubus. There are several possible explanations for the incubus legends:

During the witchhunts, alleged intercourse with demons or with Satan was one of the purported sins for which women were killed.
