All witchcraft comes from carnal lust

[All witchcraft comes from carnal lust]

[This chapter in Gordon Rattray Taylor’s Sex in History discusses sex, sexual repression, and witchcraft. He quotes the infamous Witches Hammer (Malleus Maleficarum) in regards to hysteria: “All witchcraft comes from carnal lust,” it says. Here, he speaks of the phenomenon of witches flight.]

“We find cases where people are accused of, and even confess to, being present at sabbat when eyewitnesses state that they were in their bed the whole time. Evidently we have to do here not with actual pagan worship, but with an illusion. The witches applied an ointment which was supposed to make it possible to fly through the air; the formula is known and it has been made-up and analysed. It contains atropine and belladonna, which induce beatific visions.”
