There is ample and continuous evidence that children, usually tender babes who were as yet unbaptized, were sacrificed at the Sabbat. These were often the witches’ own offspring , and since a witch not unseldom was the midwife or wise woman of a village she had exceptional opportunities of stifling a child at birth as non-Sabbatial victim to Satan. “There no persons who can do more cunning harm to the Catholic faith than midwives,: says the Malleus Maleficarum. The classic examples of child-sacrafice are those of Gilles de Rais (1440) and the Guibourg (168). In the process against the former on 140 children are explicitly named: some authorities accept as many as 800 victims. Their blood, brains, and bones were used to decoct magic philtres. In the days of Guibourg the sacrifice of a babe at the impious mass was so common that he generally paid not more than a crown-piece for his victim. “The child sacrificed at this mass he had bought for a crown.” These abominable ceremonies were frequently performed at the instance of Madame de Montespan in order that Louis XIV should always remain faithful to her, should reject all other mistresses, repudiate his queen , and in fine raise her to the throne. The most general use was to cut the throat of the child, whose blood was drained into the chalice and allowed to fall upon the naked flesh of the inquirer who lay stretched along the altar. La Voisin asserted that a toll of 1500 infants had been thus murdered. This is not impossible, as a vast number of persons, including a crowd of ecclesiastics, were implicated. Many of the greatest names in France had assisted at these orgies of blasphemy. From first to last no less than 246 men and women of all ranks and grades of society were brought to trial, and whilst 36 of humbler station went to the scaffold, 147 were imprisoned for longer or shorter terms, not a few finding it convenient to leave the country, or, at any rate, to obscure themselves in distant chateaux. But many of the leaves had been torn out of the archives, and Louis himself forbade any mention of his favourites name in connexion with these prosecutions. However, she was disgraced, and it is not surprising that after the death of Maria Teresa, 13 July, 1683, the king early in the following year married the pious and conventual Madame de Maintenon.
Ludovico Maria Sinistari writes that witches “promise the Devil sacrifices and offerings at stated times; once a fortnight, or at least each month, the murder of some child, or an homicidal act of sorcery,” and again and again in the trials detailed accusation of the kidnapping and murder of children are brought against the prisoners. In the same way as the toad was used for magical drugsso was the fat of the child.
This unnatural physical coldness of the demon is commented upon again and again by witches at thie rtrials in every country of Europe throughout the centuries. I have already suggested that in some cases there was a full materialization due to ectoplasmic emanations. Now ectoplasm is described as being to the touch a cold and viscous mass comparable to contact with a reptile, and this certainly seems to throw a flood of light upon these details. It may be that the devil who appeared to her as a dark swarthly youth “was colder than man.” Isobel Goudie and Janet Breadheid , of the Auldearne coven, 1662, both asserted that the Devil was “a meikle, blak, rock man, werie cold; and I fand his nature als cold, a spring-well-water.” Isabel, who had been rebaptized at a Sabbat held one midnight in Auldearne parish church, and to whom was assigned a familiar named the Red riever, albeit he was always clad in black, gave further detailsdetails of the Devil’s person: “He is abler for ws that way than any man can be, onlie he ves heavie lyk a malt-sek; a hudg nature, uerie cold, as yee.”
