In 1911, the French historian Jules Michelet's book "La Sorcière" was published in Paris.

The book is illustrated by Martin van Maële, who specializes in erotic subjects. However, he has less vulgar works. Vulgar in both appearance and content. The list of his works includes several that show us how the Black Mass was perceived by people living in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and what the illustrator of the book thinks about it. This is a short "investigation" is intended to draw attention to seemingly unimportant details in Maële's prints. Unfortunately, I couldn't find an electronic version of "La Sorcière" for 1911, but we have the illustrations in this book. If you think that Maële painted without guidance, you are deeply mistaken.

Looking through the drawings in the book I noticed one of them. The one that describes the place where this wild ritual takes place.

I was interested in the magic circle on the floor. I've seen this somewhere before.

In 1653, Athanasius Kircher publishes Oedipi Aegyptiaci where on pages 75 and 76 shows pentacle of the planet Venus (Friday),

and coincidence is almost identical.

It is also worth considering that there are three other sigils relating to Venus: Hagel,

Bne Seraphim

and the demon Kedemel.

Hagel, as well as Bne Seraphim (located near the left foot lying on the floor), according to Agrippa's Occult Philosophy (II, XXII) is "the Intelligences of Venus." At least that's what "A Blake Dictionary: The Ideas and Symbols of William Blake": «MNE SERAPHIM is a parent of Thel and her sisters (Thel 1:1). The name means nothing, and seems to be Blake's alteration of "Bne Seraphim" ("the sons of the Seraphim") . This latter name is to be found in Agrippa's Occult Philosophy (II, XXII), in which book Blake also found the names of Tiriel and Zazel. According to Agrippa, the Bne Seraphim are "the Intelligences of Venus."» Most likely the inscriptions of Hagel and/or Kedemel should also be present in Mahele's drawing but they are hidden by the body of what is the altar.
The sigils on the perimeter of the circle have their meanings, which can be found, for example, in the book "Transcendental magic, its doctrine and ritual" by Eliphas Lévi.
The drawing is not quite correct and half of it should be reversed, so it would be like this.

As a result, the arrangement of the zodiac signs on the circle is as follows.

Now let's talk about body position. The position of the "altar" may have varied and in the figure in question is depicted in the classic form. This is what Fabre des Essart tells us in his book "Sadism, Satanism and Gnosis" ["Sadisme, satanisme et gnose". 1906]: «Le temple est au fond d’une maison solitaire, dans la rue Beauregard, qui se trouve elle-même isolée des grands quartiers du Paris de Louis XIV. L’autel se compose d’un matelas étendu sur des trétaux. Dans sa superbe et insolente nudité, la Montespan s’y installe et s’y couche sur le dos, à l’encontre de la tradition de la Messe noire classique, où, comme on l’a vu plus haut, la prêtresse prenait la posture inverse, moins obscène. - page. 10»

By the way, Mr. Essart being a "théoricien de la Gnose et du Christianisme Ésotérique" was very unhappy that "Messe noire" has turned into outright "sadisme", under the influence of the highest circles of society («Il appert, de nombreux témoignages, que les gens de la haute société figuraient volontiers parmi les fidèles de la Messe noire. Seigneurs désœuvrés, gentes dames quêteuses de sensations nouvelles, se mêlaient à la tourbe des serfs et des vilains et venaient avec eux, baiser le derrière du bouc. <...> iis se demandèrent si cette racaille en guenilles n’avait pas ses heures d'infernale ivresse, de savante et mystérieuse orgie. Ils allèrent à elle.») Quote from the same book. and.

Regarding other works of van Maële from the mentioned book, not everything could be deciphered.
Perhaps for the figure depicting the lying on the left side the source is another pentacle with a slightly different inscription - ("Tu terribilis es & quis resistet tibi? ex tune ira tua." - Psalm 75:8). Unless I'm confused.

I could not find the images on the second magical circle but remembering the first one, perhaps these sigils are also connected with the planet Venus.

004A.jpg

And the last drawing tells a story of marquise de Montespan and the abbot Gibur.

003B.jpg


Montague Summers describing the ritual of the Black Mass with the participation of the aforementioned persons, among other things, notes the presence of esoteric characters on Gibur's vestment:

003D.jpg

"<...> the celebrant robed himself in a chasuble embroidered with esoteric characters wrought in silver <...>".
If van Maële is accurate enough in the details then perhaps these signs are not made up?

This is as revealing as horrible. I'm curious what more you might find...

I try as much as I can to help in other posts. For example.
I'm gathering material on Delomelanicon. Want to add my own version of the origin of this book to the common piggy bank. More specifically, which book or books became the prototype of Delomelanicon.

To me this is indicative of Aleister Crowley and Babylonian Magick. Pronounced: "May-gick."
Sex Magick was practiced by aerospace chemist Jack Parsons of JPL Labs fame. He needed answers to engineering questions from higher intelligences. By some accounts he was successful.
Parsons and Crowley are said to have performed Enochian Magick rituals at Groom Lake NV (Area-51) in 1948.

The book "Sex and Rockets" is a very good look into the occult world and these sex rituals. They are very powerful.
If kundalini energy is raised by sex rituals and sadism, that energy can feed dark spirits like a potent drug cocktail. In return are rewards beyond imagination. Rituals are said to be extremely important to many people in the universe, Its order from chaos. Energy exchanges such as the ones when we all have sex. The power of the Divine Feminine. Use that power for light or darkness, its just a choice based on perception and duality.
Good and evil are relative concepts.

Just think how powerful a motivator sex is in our normal world. Couple it with 9000 year old precise rituals and occult knowledge and you have an atomic bomb of energy manipulation and concentration. Who benefits? Why is it still a big thing today in some secret societies? Why is it so taboo?

Sacrificing babies goes back to Babylon, the Annunaki, and the god Moloch.
Don't let the cover fool you, its a great book.

no, but it is a good way to become psychotic if the lives of practioners are any indication.

Perfect.
Well said!
One of the reasons I abhorre rituals. In any religion good ,bad or indifferent.
Reliance on rituals to rise ( or sink) spiritually means one hasn't worked enough on oneself to develop that ability naturally, or has nefarious intentions.
