Summary

Based on documents in the dialect from Soule, the author analyzes the universal character of the cultural tendency to believe in goblins and souls of the Purgatory in the Basque Country. In the Basque rural world, in spite of satires written in Basque, by priests, as of the 1930s and the abandonment by the Church of the adoration of the souls of the Purgatory, this belief is still very much kept alive in the people.
