A supernatural appearance of a person, animal or object. Usually Apparitions imitate the living not the dead. They originate from Medieval belief and are said to be Ghosts or souls of the dead who are trapped in purgatory; they cannot enter Heaven or Hell until they have settled some task, quarrels or problems on Earth. When they have expiated their sins, they will transcend to Heaven. They have the ability to disappear easily and are not obstructed by physical objects and can thus walk through walls.
