Montague Summers – Witchcraft & Black Magic  (Arrow, 1964: originally Rider & Co., 1946)


Blurb
‘This packed treatise on the cults of Hell’ – The Observer
Witchcraft – the religion of wickedness – did not end in the eighteenth century. For then demonism was rampant in England. Satanists in the highest places joined Hellfire clubs. The celebration of the Black Mass, with its obscene, brutal, impious rites, became a flagrant scandal. The same evils threaten us today from the shadows.
