(p.1) 1 Introduction
Satanic Feminism

Per Faxneld

Oxford University Press

Chapter 1 presents the purpose of the study: to map, contextualize, and discuss the discourse of more or less explicit Satanic feminism as it is conveyed in a number of esoteric works, literary texts, autobiographies, scholarly books, political and polemical publications, newspaper reviews, editorials and articles, early works of cinema, paintings, sculptures, and even artefacts of consumer culture such as jewellery. The time period under scrutiny stretches from 1772 to the years before World War II. The great majority of sources, however, belong to the period ca. 1880–1910. Theoretical points of departure are explained, drawing on Michel Foucault, Julia Kristeva, and Bruce Lincoln. In this chapter, key terms like counter-discourse, counter-myth, esotericism, occultism, and Satanism are also defined.

Keywords:   Satanic, Satanism, feminism, esotericism, definitions, counter-myth, counter-discourse, nineteenth century
