In the year of our Lord 1345 at Levin, a town of Beohemia, the body of a woman ate in her grave (Georg. Philipp. Harsdorffer in his Theatrum Tragicorum Exemplorum, which account is taken from the one hunderes and fifteenth chapter of the Chronicon bohemiae of Hegenezius). The same thing happened in the days of Martin Luther, when there was also seen the body of a woman who had gnawn her own flesh )Luther’s Colloquia, xxiv). The same thing happened in the year 1552 in a village which is near Freiburg (Muller in his Annales Freiburgenses, p.254). The same in the year 1553 at Luben in Silesia (Conrad Schlusselburg, Grundlicher Erklarung des XCI Pf. Cons. XII, Part iii). The same happened in 1565 at Sangerhausen. (This example also ins from Schlusselburg.) The same happened in the year 1579 in the neighbourhood of Weismarien. (This is from the same author.) Adam Rother in his treatise on the plague says that when this scourge was raging in Marburg many bodies both in the town itself and in country places round about were heard to utter strange voices. This happened in the year 1581. When the plague was decimating Schisselbeing the people noticed that same thing took place in certain graveyards. This is related by Ignatius Hanielus in his Tractatus de peste in Schiesselbeing. At the beginning of this present century in the year 1603, in the village of Nienstade, which is not far from Hamburg, a body was heard to be uttering from the grave a hoarse sound like the heavy grunting of swine. A full account will be found in the work of Schlusselburg. The eminent Harsdorffer, whom we have quoted above, mentions a similar occurrence, when the body of a man not only devoured and swallowed his own linen shroud but also half devoured the corpse of a woman in a neighbouring grave. But our author does not give the year. This happened at Egwanschitz, a town of Moravia. Only seven years ago, in 1672, there was an exactly similar case in a certain village which lies at a distance of three miles from this very town, and it was observed by an intimate friend of mine, one who is worthy of the utmost confidence. The body of a man, whose name although known to me, I prefer not to mention, having been most rashly exhumed by the villagers was found to have eaten his own limbs. I may add that references to a larger number of books and a more intensive study of history would afford many more examples. But enough has been said conclusively to prove the truth of our thesis, namely that the dead have actually been known to perform the act of manducation.
