In the 18th and 19th century, the vampire myth experienced a resurgence in Central and Eastern Europe, where stories of vampires were common in popular beliefs. Vampires were often depicted as undead beings who fed on the blood of the living to survive. The villagers feared the dead who rose from their graves at night and attacked the living, spreading disease and death. Practices such as burying the dead with a rod stuck in their hearts were common to prevent vampires from rising from their graves. During this period, stories about vampires were also published in European newspapers, creating a real moral panic. However, it was in the 19th century that the vampire myth saw a real renaissance thanks to writers such as John Polidori, Sheridan Le Fanu and Bram Stoker, who popularized the legendary character through their literary works.
