With the rejection of Purgatory by the Reformed Church, the ghosts became a fashionable subject in demonological debates, just as the rediscovery of Seneca encouraged spirits to haunt the European stages. The study of the relations between these two fields shows some similitude but mostly underlines the differences in apprehending the phenomenon itself : for the demonologists, the Devil always lurked behind apparitions of the souls, whereas the playwrights developed a paradoxical ghost figure insisting on its authority but questioning its reality. Beyond this contradiction, drama better than any other genre reflects the ghost's essential ambivalence, both human and supernatural, but also the ambivalence of its perception as a phenomenon, oscillating between credulity and scepticism
