“Should her father die very shortly it would not come unexpected to him. When a short time ago here and there in Hungary blood red crosses appeared on the bodies of the people and other blood red signs on the house doors, walls, and benches, I was, as far as I know, the first in the town to perceive a little cross on my left foot, the colour of which merged from blood red to yellow. It appeared on that part of the foot where the back spreads out, right in the middle between the root of the shin and the toes. I should think that this and no other was the place where the nail of the cross was driven into Christ’s foot. In some people, as I am informed, there is a mark of a drop of blood on the surface of the hand. Christ’s hands were also transfixed. But no one here has anything familiar to that which I have.
As late as 1704, in various villages in the jurisdiction of Insterburg in east Prussia, markings of a similar nature were observed and considered to be Hebrew letters.
Not until a few decades later did a courageous natural scientist prove that the blood stains were due to the excrements of butterflies (leucoma dispar). When the storm blast and “it is not to be taken lightly and waved away” prostrates the straightest and stoutest trees, but also rips off the freshest fruit, it then seems to the Thuringian chronicler to be an omen that many young, strong and lusty people will be laid low and carried off by the plague. During the plague of 1565 in Italy rumblings of thunder were heard day and night, as in a war, together with the turmoil and noise as of a mighty army. In Germany in many places a noise was heard as if a hearse were passing through the streets of its own accord, “and of other phantom gravediggers were meeting the real gravediggers on their return from the cemetery, as is frequently said to have happened to the gravediggers, the so called wicked men of Leipzig, inspiring them with the greatest horror.”
