Oh, here it is, I found the quotation I was thinking of regarding
demonic madness.  It is from St. Teresa of Avila, who, in The Interior
Castle, writes, "The spirit of evil tends to take advantage of people
who suffer from mental illness and causes harm not only to them but to
the people around them."  Mirabai Staar translation, chapter on the
Sixth Dwelling (p. 173).

St. Teresa finished the work in Spain, in...1577.
