    Abstract

    The aim of this article is to focus on the analysis of popular views on taboo words related to the world of darkness and evil. From this perspective, we will discuss how – during the period between the XIV and XVIII century – popular imagination has created a lexicon in this specific field, represented by the taboos when one of the words is used. Also, we will see how and why there is a breaking of taboos when it comes to integrating socially forbidden words as cores of idioms. To achieve this, we will give an extensive historical presentation of how the notion of evil was created in mass awareness and what are the elements that best represent it.
