Christianity, Saints, and Werewolves!

Werewolves are thoroughly embedded in religion….even in Christianity.  Many who do not believe in werewolves have no farther to look than there own religions to find tales, stories, and references to transformations, curses, and shapeshifters.  In fact, there are even Saints – people believed to be the most holy of all, that have close ties with werewolves.

  • Saint Christopher is considered the patron saint of travelers.  Less known about this saint however is that he is often depicted as a Cynocephali – which means having the head of a dog!  Don’t believe it?  You can even find old images of Saint Christopher depicted with his “dog head”.
  • Saint Andrew, a Christian apostle is the patron saint of Scotland (among other countries).  He is said to have preached Christianity to many groups including the Scythians and the Neuri – a tribe that the Scythians believed turned themselves into wolves (aka werewolves!).
  • Saint Patrick is an incredibly well known saint – both in Ireland, and throughout the world.  But did you know that he is believed to have transformed the Welsh King Vereticus into a wolf?
  • Saint Natalis, a lesser known saint you might not be too familiar with is said to have cursed an Irish family to transform into wolves every seven years!

  4. We are from Ireland. You don’t have to believe me but God created werewolves. We used to be the first prototype of the humans a sentient being capable of becoming a beast at will. Then Then come the humans. We were then God’s hounds because the angels were strong ranking and rare just like us but the demons were weak yet growing in numbers. We could assume it human form unlike the angels. We helped win and were sent home and improved in power. But we could only transform on a full moon.
    That’s all of it. You don’t have to believe me.
