Chapter12 summarizes the findings of the study and answers the main questions posed in chapter 1, namely: In the material that can, in some sense, be classified as Satanic feminism, what motifs are recurrent? What sort of individuals usually expressed these ideas—what was their social class, level of education, temperament, and political orientation? What was the typical readership of the texts and how were they received? What hermeneutical strategies were employed when counter-reading the Bible or subverting misogynist motifs in Christian myth? How far is the inversion of Christian myth taken? What seems to be problematic when using Satan as a paragon of feminism, and how do the figures in question deal with this? Finally, some additional ruminations are presented.
