Originile (teologice ale) epilarii

Unde e teologic e si dracesc, nu? CTO:

It has lately been found that the Devil do generally mark them with a private mark, by reason the Witches have confessed themselves, that the Devil do lick them with his tongue in some private part of their body, before he receives them to be his servants, which mark commonly is given them under the hair in some part of their body, whereby it may not easily be found out or seen, although they be searched: and generally so long as the mark is not seen to those which search them, so long the parties that have the mark will never confess anything. Therefore by special commandment this Agnis Sampson had all her hair shaven off, in each part of her body, and her head thrown with a rope according to the custom of that country, being a paine most grievous, which she continued almost an hour, during which time she would not confess anything until the Devil’s mark was found upon her privates, then she immediately confessed whatsoever was demanded of her…*

Si uite asa, femeile continua traditia pana astazi, in speranta ca those which search them in some private part of their body vor gasi ceea ce cauta fara prea multa pierdere de timp. :D

  1. P.S. Pt. cei cu o slabiciune pt. engleza de cartier, iata textul original:

    “it hath latelye been found that the Deuill dooth generallye marke them with a priuie marke, by reason the Witches haue confessed themselues, that the Diuell dooth lick them with his tung in some priuy part of their bodie, before hee dooth receiue them to be his seruants, which marke commonly is giuen them vnder the haire in some part of their bodye, whereby it may not easily be found out or seene, although they be searched: and generally so long as the marke is not seene to those which search them, so long the parties that hath the marke will neueer confesse any thing. Therefore by special commaundement this Agnis Sampson had all her haire shauen of, in each parte of her bodie, and her head thrawen with a rope according to the custome of that Countrye, beeing a paine most greeuous, which she continued almost an hower, during which time she would not confesse any thing vntill the Diuels marke was found vpon her priuities, then she immediatlye confessed whatsoeuer was demaunded of her and iustifying those persons aforesaid to be notorious witches.”
