“Melancholia was described as a distinct disease with particular mental and physical symptoms in the 5th and 4th centuries BC.  Hippocrates, in his Aphorisms, characterized all “fears and despondencies, if they last a long time” as being symptomatic of melancholia.  When a patient could not be cured of the disease it was thought that the melancholia was a result of demonic possession.” – Wikipedia
