|Throughout history, epileptics have run the gamut between social scorn and acceptance. In ancient times thought to be possessed by evil spirits or demons, epileptics were shunned or worse by local holymen. In Greece and Rome, a connection to genius was suspected. In our modern technological age, a stigma has returned, with sufferers prone to loss of jobs and driving licenses, and subjected to drugs or surgery in which the cure may be worse that the disease.

Forensic diagnoses are of course subject to debate, but this quiz deals with celebrities and historic figures who are thought to have been epileptics.|
