Hercules: Three Hands Press, 2019. Limited Edition of 500 hand numbered copies. A FINE VOLUME, bound in Copper-gilt premium cloth, with dust jacket. Three Hands Press, 2019. Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies only. Design by Seattle artist, Joseph Uccello, and dust jacket illustrated by Benjamin Vierling. Octavo. As has been established by several historians, including Dr. Carlo Ginzburg and Éva Pócs, the elements of the medieval Witches’ Sabbat contains relics of the ancient spirit cults and localized 'pagan' folk beliefs of Europe. Nocturnal spirit-flight, by which the participants of the Sabbat traveled to their revelry, also contained such historical rudiments, notably the night-roving denizens of the Wild Hunt and the exteriorized or shape-shifted 'spirit-double'. This volume by the late Michael Howard examines such elements as the ancestral horde, the flight of the Furious Host, and the entheogenic Witches' 'Flying Ointment', each of which played a unique role in the 'flight' of the medieval witches. The mythos of the Sabbatic conclave, containing infernal and diabolical elements, is taken beyond its Christian pathology to connect it with actual practices in folk-magic. (Item ID: X-MSn)
