Belief in witchcraft and black magic - with its roots in ancient fertility rites, debauchery and human sacrifice - is one of the oldest and strongest superstitions of mankind. In "Satan's Disciples", Robert Goldston examines the entire - history of witchcraft and Satanism from the Middle Ages to the present day. Here are described the rites of the Black Mass, the drugs used by witches to arouse lust or inspire visions, the discoveries of the occult sciences. Did black magic really work? It certainly did and still does. Here are the facts about such infamous practitioners of the Black Arts as Gilles de Rais, Cagliostro, Rasputin and the 20th century witches and warlocks who even now perform their depraved ceremonies and blasphemous rites in all the major capitals of the world.
