SATAN - Jünger, Jäger und Justiz (with Andreas Huettl)
Published by Kreuzfeuer Verlag
Andreas Huettl and Peter-R. Koenig
Andreas Huettl provides an historical and legal overview of decades of ritual murder accusations. These accusations are typically raised without concrete proof, but nevertheless commonly pursued against occult sects in general.
This summary overview is enhanced with 30 years of findings from police authorities, public prosecutor's offices and legal cases. Information from all state police agencies, the Federal Criminal Investigation Office and the Federal Information Service are considered as well as judicial rulings since the early 1970's involving the wave of Satanic Panic over alleged Satanic crimes committed by occult orders.
The roots of these accusations are traced historically over the centuries through the blood-soaked accusations of ritual murder legends, including the most spectacular cases of diabolical crimes, including infamous allegations against Jews; each case is highlighted by a legal evaluation. The recurring pattern of child murder allegations shows that virtually the same content and nearly identical phraseology occurs no matter which group is accused.
Following this historical survey, occult order expert P.R. Koenig, who has collected and published for over 20 years detailed material and information on these orders, reveals background facts, numbers and information to prove that typically occult groups, although routinely condemned by the media and so-called cult experts, on closer inspection do not appear to have committed these sensational Satanic crimes nor be the masterminds of a worldwide conspiracy.
This book is an interdisciplinary view of Satanism, its intimate relationship with the mass media and its legal rights in relation to the police and before the Courts of Justice, with an exploration of the social meaning of the new religion Thelema and its protagonists.
