"Père, pardonnez-leur, ils ne savent pas ce qu'ils font." Pardonnez à ces sept pécheurs victimes d'étranges maléfices, venus chercher dans le confessionnal une oreille attentive au récit de leur infortune, et implorer le salut de leur âme souillée par la curiosité et la faiblesse de la chair. Pardonnez aussi à cette femme calomniée, emmurée dans un cruel silence. Pardonnez enfin à l'homme de Dieu qui a recueilli leurs aveux et brisé le sceau de la confession en les transcrivant dans un opus à l'odeur de soufre, Maleficium. A la fin du XIXe siècle, sept hommes partis aux confins de l'Orient et de l'Afrique croisent tour à tour la route d'une troublante créature. Pourquoi les soumet-elle aux plus inavouables tentations ? De quoi cherche-t-elle à les punir ? En huit tableaux, Martine Desjardins compose une fresque baroque, invitant à voyager aux limites des plaisirs et de la souffrance. Une oeuvre rare, parfumée de fantastique, d'exotisme et d'érotisme, portée par une langue somptueuse.

What was witchcraft? Were witches real? How should witches be identified? How should they be judged? Towards the end of the middle ages these were new questions, without answers hallowed by time and authority. Between 1430 and 1500, a number of learned "witch-theorists" attempted to provide the answers, and of these perhaps the most famous are the Dominican inquisitors Heinrich Institoris and Jacob Sprenger, the authors of the Malleus Maleficarum, The Hammer of Witches. This, the first book-length study of the Malleus in English, provides students and scholars with an introduction to this text and to the conceptual world of its authors. Ultimately, this book argues that although the Malleus was a highly idiosyncratic text, with a view of witches very different from that of competing authors, its arguments were powerfully compelling and so remained influential long after alternatives were forgotten.

On September 20, 1587, Walpurga Hausmännin of Dillingen in southern Germany was burned at the stake as a witch. Although she had confessed to committing a long list of maleficia (deeds of harmful magic), including killing forty—one infants and two mothers in labor, her evil career allegedly began with just one heinous act—sex with a demon. Fornication with demons was a major theme of her trial record, which detailed an almost continuous orgy of sexual excess with her diabolical paramour Federlin "in many divers places, . . . even in the street by night." As Walter Stephens demonstrates in Demon Lovers, it was not Hausmännin or other so-called witches who were obsessive about sex with demons—instead, a number of devout Christians, including trained theologians, displayed an uncanny preoccupation with the topic during the centuries of the "witch craze." Why? To find out, Stephens conducts a detailed investigation of the first and most influential treatises on witchcraft (written between 1430 and 1530), including the infamous Malleus Maleficarum (Hammer of Witches). Far from being credulous fools or mindless misogynists, early writers on witchcraft emerge in Stephens's account as rational but reluctant skeptics, trying desperately to resolve contradictions in Christian thought on God, spirits, and sacraments that had bedeviled theologians for centuries. Proof of the physical existence of demons—for instance, through evidence of their intercourse with mortal witches—would provide strong evidence for the reality of the supernatural, the truth of the Bible, and the existence of God. Early modern witchcraft theory reflected a crisis of belief—a crisis that continues to be expressed today in popular debates over angels, Satanic ritual child abuse, and alien abduction.

Angelo, che si è isolato in un cimitero per meditare e trovare un’ispirazione, scopre di non essere solo. Con l’aria impenetrabile, la strana gentilezza, il sorriso vago, la premessa di soddisfare quell'ispirazione, Daniele, un vampiro, sorprende Angelo suscitandogli un’istintiva paura; ma presto riesce a ispirargli fiducia, e inizia a raccontargli una storia... Daniele racconta ad Angelo se stesso, e la sua tormentata speranza di ritrovare Luna: dal XVII secolo ai giorni nostri, la storia di un amore condannato all’oscura pena di una vecchia maledizione.
