Relating to the moon. An epithet given to diseases which are supposed to appear at certain phases of the moon, or to those who are affected by them. The term lunatic (Mooned, Moonstruck, Selenobletus), is restricted to one labouring under lunacy or mental alienation, Dementia accidentalis seu adventitia, that is, under any form unsoundness of mind, except idiocy. In law, a lunatic is one who has had an understanding, but by disease, grief, or other accident, has lost the use of his reason, and become non compos mentis or non compos.
