Friar Rush

This is a house-spirit (German Rausch) that was supposedly sent from infernal regions to keep friars and monks of the 17th century in the same state of wickedness that they then existed in. He gained admittance into monastic houses as a scullion; probably as a representative of the spirit of inebriety. A.G.H.
