> What is melancholia? Is there any difference between melancholia and depression?

I'm not sure of the technical textbook differences here. But in my mind, melancholia is a form of depression characterized by being chronic in nature, and having emphasis on symptoms of anhedonia and overall gloominess. With melancholia, the person is able to function, but doesn't really live or enjoy anything.
