In keeping with più di tre secoli, da un capo all’altro d’Europa, donne e uomini accusati di
stregoneria raccontarono di essersi recati al sabba: il raduno notturno in cui,
alla presenza del diavolo, si celebravano banchetti, orge sessuali, cerimonie
antropofagiche, profanazioni di riti cristiani. In queste descrizioni, spesso estor­
te con los angeles tortura, oggi si tende a riconoscere il frutto delle ossessioni di inqui­
sitori e giudici. Questo libro, attraverso l’analisi di processi, trattati di demono­
logia, prediche, documenti iconografici, materiale folklorico, propone un’inter­
pretazione diversa. In essa eventi e strutture, storia e morfologia si susseguono,
si contrappongono, si intrecciano. Dietro l’immagine enigmatica del sabba
vediamo affiorare a poco a poco uno strato antichissimo, con ogni probabilità
più che millenario, di miti e riti eurasiatici a sfondo sciamanico.
Una storia notturna, sconosciuta. Essa ha imposto una riflessione sulle possi­
bilità e i limiti del mestiere dello storico - e più in generale, sulle radici antro­
pologiche del raccontare.
