Barbarians are
driven by evil spirts;
'they are
possessed by demons' who
force them to commit the most
terrible
acts. Barbarians simply resemble
animals more
than they do human
beings, concluded contemporaries,
wondering whether barbarians shared
in human nature at
animals' the barbarians were
viewed as
incapable of living according to written
laws and
only reluctantly tolerating
kings... Their lust for gold is immense,
their love of drink boundless.
Barbarians are
without restraint... The
reproductive energy of the barbarians is
inexhaustible"
