According to this short text on Rohr 's De masticatione mortuorum , "De Masticatione Mortuorum or to use its full title Dissertatio Historico-Philosophica de Masticatione Mortuorum is now cult among the modern 'vampire' community, and a favourite name for death metal bands.

Personally I find it pretty hard to relate to this association between the topic of this blog and a musical genre which I find myself unable to appreciate. Aesthetically and musically it is quite adverse to what I identify with. I remember many years ago buying a LP titled Nosferatu by a band called Helstar because both the title and cover illustration referred to Murnau 's movie Nosferatu.
Well, it was very hard to just listen to once, so I have steered clear of that kind of records ever since. But it seems to be a curious fact that people can have very different approaches to our subject of vampires and magia posthuma. Labels: Magia Posthuma , music , Nosferatu , Rohr , vampire movies.
Monday, 24 December Merry christmas! After weeks of silence I have considered how to wish visitors of this blog a merry christmas. I found this book at The Royal Library in Copenhagen in the mid Eighties, when the book was virtually unknown. Later on I noticed that Aribert Schroeder knew of it, when he wrote Vampirismus: Seine Entwicklung vom Thema zum Motiv in , but Schroeder's book was and is for some reason unfortunately very scarce. Then, in , Tallar turned up a few times in Paul Barber 's Vampires, Burial, and Death , and later on he has been quoted by a few other authors, so his investigations are getting their proper place in the history of magia posthuma.
Investigations that include interviewing and examining people who claim to be the victims of vampires or moroi and the examination of corpses suspected of being vampires.

The end of the year is usually a pretty busy time in my life I suppose it is the same for a lot of those who visit this blog , and consequently I have found it hard to give this blog as much time and attention as I would have preferred.

Labels: vampire research. Sunday, 18 November Baron Vordenburg's library. He had taken up his abode in Gratz, where, living upon a mere pittance, which was all that remained to him of the once princely estates of his family, in Upper Styria, he devoted himself to the minute and laborious investigation of the marvellously authenticated tradition of Vampirism. He had a voluminous digest of all the judicial cases, from which he had extracted a system of principles that appear to govern—some always, and others occasionally only— the condition of the vampire.
I may mention, in passing, that the deadly pallor attributed to that sort of revenants, is a mere melodramatic fiction. They present, in the grave, and when they show themselves in human society, the appearance of healthy life. When disclosed to light in their coffins, they exhibit all the symptoms that are enumeranted as those which proved the vampire-life of the long-dead Countess Karnstein.
How they escape from their graves and return to them for certain hours every day, without displacing the clay or leaving any trace of disturbance in the state of the coffin or the cerements, has always been admitted to be utterly inexplicable. The amphibious existence of the vampire is sustained by daily renewed slumber in the grave. Its horrible lust for living blood supplies the vigour of its waking existence.
The vampire is prone to be fascinated with an engrossing vehemence, resembling the passion of love, by particular persons. In pursuit of these it will exercise inexhaustible patience and stratagem, for access to a particular object may be obstructed in a hundred ways. It will never desist until it has satiated its passion, and drained the very life of its coveted victim. But it will, in these cases, husband and protract its murderous enjoyment with the refinement of an epicure, and heighten it by the gradual approaches of an artful courtship. In these cases it seems to yearn for something like sympathy and consent.
In ordinary ones it goes direct to its object, overpowers with violence, and strangles and exhausts often at a single feast. Harenberg 's book was published in German see the accompanying illustration , but somehow got a Latin title in Calmet 's book, and this must be the reason why Le Fanu uses a Latin title and spells Harenberg's name 'Herenberg' like Calmet did.
Phlegon 's De Mirabilius will be well-known to readers of books on vampires, and Augustin 's De cura pro mortuis gerenda is a key Catholic text on the care for the dead.
Regular visitors of this blog probably would like to have at their fingers' ends all these and other books on the subject. Petersen at 3 comments: Email This BlogThis! Thursday, 15 November The Rhetoric of Exorcism. Although peripheral to the traditional field of vampirology, it should be apparent from this blog that historically vampires and magia posthuma can not be disconnected from other beliefs and practices, including demonology, so some might find this extract from a paper entitled The Rhetoric of Exorcism by Hilaire Kallendorf interesting or even fascinating: 'No one has ever tried to write a rhetoric of exorcism.
In fact scholars of previous generations have posted caveat emptor signs along the pathway we are about to take. One encounters warnings such as, "The actual scripts or texts of exorcisms are difficult to characterize It is also true that exorcism manuals are not redacted carefully for example, they are rife with errors of Latin grammar. After all, exorcism manuals are pragmatic collections of utilitarian documents scholars speak of the "applied" nature of demonology.
Their pages are meant to be aspersed with holy water, singed by the fire of the baptismal candle, clouded with the smoke of incense, and spat upon by seething demoniacs. But it is the case that most exorcism rituals are performed by reading aloud these texts of highly codified, formulaic discourse - many of which resemble each other or quote from each other extensively.
So in theory it should be possible to analyze the language of these texts in a way that is general or all-encompassing enough to formulate some tentative conclusions about how exorcism "works" as a rhetorical phenomenon in the early modern period. Scholars in the field of demonology who are the most familiar with these texts make these generalizations routinely; rhetoricians may be permitted the same latitude. Establishing the classical foundation of Catholic exoristic rhetoric will then be seen to supply an important brush stroke for our emerging scholarly portrait of Christian humanism in the early modern period.

Thomas Bohn is currently teaching a seminar on the cultural history of the vampire. The seminar started on October 17th and continues to February 5th The description of the seminar e. At the same time the phrase 'vampirism' worked as an imperial category. It was primarily aimed at the border areas of the empires that stood up against each other in Central Europe. While the witch hunts of the 16th and 17th centuries proceeded from the West to the East of the continent, the posthumous staking and burning of vampires on the contrary spread from the East to the West.
From a colonial perspective vampirism could be interpreted as an invasion of primitive forces and connected with slavophobic thoughts. On this background the home of the vampire displaced itself from Serbia and Hungary over Moravia and Silesia to Poland and Lithuania. However, here is the original description of the seminar: "Prof. Sie wurden zum Ausdruck einer barbarischen Welt stilisiert, von der sich das zivilisierte Europa abgrenzen konnte.

Sunday, 28 October Non dantur Vampyri. I have found less time for writing posts recently. However, as you will no doubt have noticed, I have added some elements to the blog layout, including a short introduction to the subject of the blog.
Accompanying this text is a scan of a portion of the title page of the dissertation on vampires written by Pohl and Hertel and published in Leipzig in , Dissertatio de hominibus post mortem sangvisvgis, vulgo sic dictis Vampyren. As is common in some texts, the word sanguisuga is used as the Latin equivalent of "vampire". Pohl and Hertel find that the "vampyres" should be explained by natural causes: "Non dantur Vampyri, sed mortis genuina causa potius morbo epidemico est adscribenda.
The horseleach or haemopis sanguisuga however certainly exists, and pictures of it can e. Labels: , Bible , blood sucking , Leipzig , vampire books , vampires. Today it is years since Augustin Calmet died. Had he not written a book on revenants and vampires, this blog would probably not have existed. Saturday, 20 October The Vampire and the Devil.

Labels: conference , devil , vampires. Saturday, 13 October A haunted cemetery. A friend of mine asked me to join him for a special walk in one of Copenhagen's cemeteries yesterday evening.
So we walked around in the dark and came pretty close to some female 'apparitions' dressed in white garments, one of them even being very tall with her shroud floating around her. One may take the opportunity to reflect upon why a the people in charge of the cemetery arrange this kind of event. I suppose that some would even find it disrespectful of those who are buried there to make their graves the site of entertainment.
I do, however, think it was done in a relatively respectful way, and the few people who were actually going around the cemetery seemed to act responsibly. For this reason I myself have no particular qualms about it, and of course, historically cemeteries have been used for various purposes, so why not a bit of 'haunting'?
First and foremost the event to me indicates that most of us are not really so afraid of meeting a revenant or ghost to avoid the opportunity to enter a cemetery by night. On the other hand, the question of 'what if' probably 'tickles' our imagination so much that it is attractive to go and see what happens. The cemetery in question is the burial site of many well-known Danes, e.
It is also the cemetery where an interesting incident concerning premature burial occurred in the late 18th century. Tradition has had it that when grave robbers came to steal from the corpse of a young woman called Giertrud Birgitte Bodenhoff , they found her alive and killed her. This tale had been retold for about years when it was decided to exhume the remains of the corpse and examine it to ascertain whether there was any truth in the stories of grave robbers and premature burial.
Viggo Starcke who was in charge of the examination, concluded that the tradition was true, and wrote a book on the mystery of Giertrud Birgitte Bodenhoff that was published in Labels: cemeteries , Copenhagen , Denmark , grave robbers , premature burial. Monday, 8 October Calmet on ebay. A nice copy of the third edition of Calmet 's Traite from was recently sold on ebay. For those of you who may be wondering about that otherwise so elusive Magia Posthuma by Karl Ferdinand von Schertz that I now have at hand, here are just a couple of facts.
As those of you who are familiar with Calmet may remember, he relates that von Schertz here in the English translation of Henry Christmas relates, that in a certain village, a woman being just dead, who had taken all her sacraments, she was buried in the usual way in the cemetery. Four days after her decease, the inhabitants of this village heard a great noise and extraordinary uproar, and saw a spectre, which appeared sometimes in the shape of a dog, sometimes in the form of a man, not to one person only, but to several, and caused them great pain, grasping their throats, and compressing their stomachs, so as to suffocate them.
It bruised almost the whole body, and reduced them to extreme weakness, so that they became pale, lean and attenuated.

The spectre attacked even animals, and some cows were found debilitated and half-dead. Sometimes it tied them together by their tails. These animals gave sufficient evidence by their bellowing of the pain they suffered. The horses seemed overcome with fatigue, perspired profusely, principally on the back; were heated, out of breath, covered with foam, as after a long and rough journey.
These calamities lasted several months. Unfortunately, he does not identify the village he only says: in Pago N. Curiously, he writes that the spectre is seen as a cat cattus , and not as a dog Calmet has chien , so somehow Calmet got it wrong. Otherwise, this is, as Calmet says, the incident that von Schertz relates at the beginning of his book before going on to refer to the case of the shepherd from Blov. Like I have said before , it would be very interesting to have a critical and annotated edition of Calmet's book on revenants and vampires based on a reading of Calmet's source material.

I have not read the book yet, but in about pages Bailey attempts to survey the history of concepts like magic , superstition and witchcraft , even including a few references to vampires like this one: After , officials in the English government and church were effectively enjoined against expresing any credence in the new superstitious belief in witchcraft.
Needless to say, widespread belief in witchcraft and other forms of magic did not vanish in England in this year, nor in France in , nor anywhere else in Europe as witch hunting came to an end. In some areas, other beliefs that might explain unexpected death or misfortune arose or took on renewed strength.
For example, in the Hungarian region of Transylvania, belief in vampires may well have taken on new life even as central authorities became increasingly skeptical about witchcraft. Debates about vampires circulated around the Habsburg court in Vienna and may have influenced Maria Theresa's mid-eighteenth-century legislation effectively ending witch trials.
Mostly, though, belief in witchcraft and magic simply endured, and continued to be expressed in local communities as it always had been. For despite all the sound and fury attached to the great witch hunts of Europe, witch hunts and witch trials were never the way most common people dealt with witchcraft.

Some obvious questions to pursue, then, were: Why and where did the idea of modern vampirism as opposed to the belief in the lamiae and succubi of classical antiquity spring up?
And why has it had such a grip on the public consciousness since the fifteenth century? However, I did not see myself in a position to write the ultimate, all-inclusive vampire encyclopedia, and thus I was forced to restrict myself to a more narrowly defined enterprise. The book was published by Peter Lang Publishing in And this certainly is a more narrowly defined enterprise: pages attempting to answer the question: What is it about vampires that fascinates the human imagination?
Well, the author has obviously studied both Freud and Todorov, and he mainly focuses on the fictional vampire, so this is not a book of particular interest for those who are interested in folklore and the history of Magia Posthuma.

Sunday, 16 September It seems that in Denmark as late as years ago educated and enlightened people were worried about the belief in ghosts and revenants. According to a Danish book on the subject, the first performance of Mozart's Don Giovanni was postponed until because the directors of the Danish Royal Opera were concerned that this opera might give new life to the belief in revenants.
By then 20 years had passed since the initial performance of the opera in Prague in ! Labels: Denmark , Mozart , revenants. Dracula's Vettern. In an earlier post I stated my doubts concerning the uniqueness of the vampire. Peter Kremer convincingly documents that the latter is the correct answer, and that folkloric entities known in e. Western parts of Germany share all the basic characteristics of the Slavic vampire. This may surprise those who have not been able to study the material available on revenants of various sorts throughout Europe, but Kremer certainly has done his home work and is familiar with not only the usual literature on vampires, but also the literature on other types of revenants, as well as folklore in general, witchcraft cases, werewolves, anthropology and more.
His reading of various authors and sources is both critical and analytical. To some scholars the belief in revenants and vampires was so primitive that it had to be seen as non-Germanic, and consequently they had reason to insist on the South East European Slavic roots of the belief. Kremer expertly reviews the literature and details the various German kinds of revenants, including the masticating dead, and explains the ideas behind these beliefs. He even goes back into prehistory to explore the origins of the fear of the dead and the apotropaic means to defend oneself against the harm of revenants.
He is even able to propose hypotheses on how the various revenants can be seen as various evolutionary stages of revenant beliefs, incorporating the role of the Christian churches in the evolution of the corporeal revenant into the 'ethereal' spectre of later ghost stories.
