Down There: A History of Satanism

presents another account of bizarre and historical importance. Patrick is a well known Flemish writer that never ceases to shock me with his phenomenal tales of ghosts and other mysteries.

Joris-Karl Huysmans, "J.K." for the friends, had been a naturalist writer and then wrote the "bible" of decadence ("A rebours"/"Against Nature"). If you want to read all about his early years, take a look here: Joris-Karl Huysmans and the Essence of Decadence. Now, at the age of 42, J.K. was at a turning point in his life and his career. In 1890 he wrote to the young Dutch novelist Arie Prins that he was looking for "a demoniac sodomite priest" who performed the black mass. J.K. needed him for a new book. He had to insinuate himself into the word of the occultists for what would become "Là-bas" (translated as "Down There" in 1924, and "The Damned"). Read and See More of the History of Satanism
