Devil Worship in France. By A. E. Waite.

$50.00

A.E. Waite’s DevilWorship in France, rather than being an infernal howto book or even a history of what the title purports, is in fact an examination of a most sensational hoax perpetrated by Parisian journalist, Leo Taxil. Taxil and fictitious associate, Diana Vaughan, created a scandal in the late 1800s by reporting on a most heinous occult sect, the “Palladian Masons,” that admitted women and performed diabolic acts of “Luciferian Spiritism.” Taxil’s “revelation” of this secret society and its supposed links to Freemasonry and other occult organizations, created a public hysteria and outcry against all things occult, especially secret societies.
