The literature can be difficult to come by, but as I understand it the process of creating one generally involves imbuing a clay figure/statue with a spiritual essence. It is generally a potent method of servitor creation, in my opinion.

Long time ago I read a novel about a golem, cannot remember the title. But I did ask a Rabbi about it and he told me that it was a monster, ghost figure. He also said he wasn't at all sure they actually existed. This was at a time I lived in the mainly Jewish area of Leeds, so I did ask some of my Jewish friends. Most seemed to think it was like the "bogie man", to frighten children. Some said it was nonsense, and din't exist.
