The word daimon from which demon is taken originally translates to mean a spirit or a being that is spiritual in nature.
Somewhere along the line, demons came to represent unclean and dirty beings. This was true for almost every major faith and belief in the world, from eastern religions to Christian beliefs. It was believed that if a human being was possessed by a demonic spirit, then it was important for the person to be exorcised in some way of the other.
