Glass delusion

Glass delusion

An unusual psychiatric disorder known as Glass Delusion swept through Europe during the late Medieval period and it consisted of people coming to believe they were made out of glass, and feared that they might shatter into pieces. King Charles VI of France suffered from glass delusions. He refused to let people touch him and wore reinforced clothing to protect himself from accidental “shattering.”
