All Men Are Liars

Malleus Maleficarum @ All Men are Liars

by Sam de Brito There are lots of scary books in the world, with almost anything written by Stephen King or Sarah Palin pretty much unreadable if you’re afraid of the dark and camping somewhere isolated. Of course, there’s another type of scary: certain “holy” books that, in my opinion, people do themselves an injustice […]

The Right Waging Spiritual Warfare: You Too Could be a Witch

by Hrafnkell Haraldsson October 22, 2010 Excerpts: You too could be a witch. All it takes is an accusation. Why is it as the year 2010 draws to a close that we find ourselves talking about Witchcraft? I don’t mean Wicca, the religion that sees historical witchcraft as survivals of ancient Pagan religion, but of […]

Fragments of Evolving Manhood: When Witches Stole Penises

In a very entertaining article, author Richard Jeffrey Newman explores some of the issues and subject matter involved in the Malleus Maleficarum, using a contemporary example of a man who has lost his penis (to a witch) to get the article rolling, and following with a more serious discussion. I recommend it for a fresh perspective on […]

Is It Okay To Read The Malleus Maleficarum?

I stumbled across references in the Landover Baptist Church forums about the Malleus Maleficarum. If you’re not familiar with Landover Baptist Church, rest assured that it’s a parody of fundamentalist churches and the Religious Right. What makes this web site so poignant is that the issues that are parodied are often indistinguishable from the real […]

National Talk Like A Pirate Day

September 19th is National Talk Like A Pirate Day. For that day, the Malleus Maleficarum will be converted to Pirate speak. So don’t be surprised if you go there and find that the entire text of this diabolical work suddenly has been invested with an extra swagger that it didn’t have before. Hopefully we won’t […]

Call Out My Name

by Ana the Imp She was no ordinary succubus. Late into the night Through cold, electric clouds She flew with broken wings On currents kindled by dreams. And finally, descending upon His yearning body, she whispered: “I’m late, my love, but tender is the morning.” I have before me my copy of the Malleus Maleficarum […]

A New Store And A New Decade

You may have noticed that we added a store to the Malleus Maleficarum Online web site. This was done only after long deliberation. We’ve never wanted to be seen as capitalizing on our work here (although quite a few others have had no qualms about selling our work for themselves). The unpleasant reality, however, is […]

Witchcraft and Aliens: Were Medieval Witches Actually Early Abductees?

This is an interesting take on the Inquisition and the role of the Malleus Maleficarum at a blog titled “Diary of an Alien Life Form“. Whether or not you agree with it, the ideas presented make for some interesting conversation. It’s easy to forget that during the time of the Malleus Maleficarum and the Inquisition, […]
