This nomenclature no doubt harks back to the impure and unclean spirit of idolatry. To the ennobled and regenerated Christian soul, uncleanness was inseparable from the pagans' worship of their lesser divinities, or demons, both from a physical and psychical point of view. This is echoed by an emphatic longer descriptive phrase, occurring once only, and this in Luke 4:33.
