Coming later today here on Irregular Times: An article dealing with the subject matter of Satanism, child sacrifices, witch trials, and J. Gordon Melton, a professor of American religious history at Baylor University and founder of the Institute for the Study of American Religion.
For background as I am completing the article, I’d appreciate hearing the thoughts of readers about two subjects: One rather general, and one quite specific.
General: What is your understanding of Satanism? What is it, and what do you think of it?
Specific: Can anyone find any evidence that would stand up in a court of law today to substantiate the accusation that Athénaïs de Montespan and Étienne Guibourg killed babies as sacrifices in Satanic rituals in the time of King Louis XIV?
Update: The article is now online — Real History of the Black Mass.
