Lure Of The Sinister

£25.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Rumors of Devil-worship, or Satanism, have circulated for centuries. The Lure of the Sinister draws on a remarkable range of sources, from newspapers and pulp literature to early modern works on demonology to explore the entire history of Satanism from the origins of the Devil in pre-Christian theology through the Inquisition to the life and times of Aleister Crowley, "the "wickedest man in the world." The book also investigates modern charges of Satanism, the psychology of the people who make the allegations, and the legal and religious contexts in which they arise, showing how rumors of Devil-worship come to take on a life of their own. Published in 2001 by New York University Press.

The book is in as new condition.
