Good morning /x/. I'm looking for book recommendations on historical accounts of vampires, strigoi, and vampirism. Or books on Eastern European folklore. There was a guy who made a compendium of historical accounts of vampires, but I can't find the book and forgot the authors name. Seen a GoFundMe ad for it on Facebook months ago.
Do you believe in vampires Anon? If so I’m what capacity?
I do not, well I don't know. Maybe they're out there, maybe they're not. I find the old legends far more terrifying than modern depictions of vampires. Salems Lot cemented my fear of vampires as a kid.
Tgere was this enciclopedia of vamps I cannot find anymore...
This is from the Cathedral of St. Mary of Toledo. It is Cain killing Abel. The individual that took this photo claimed that it came from the Zohar, that depicts Cain killing Abel like a viper. This is incorrect. It more than likely comes from the The Life of Adam and Eve which predates the Zohar. In the story Eve has a vision of Cain killing Abel and tasting his blood. Similar depictions occur in the Alba Bible which slightly post date the Zohar. It could be that the Zohar is responsible for adding the part about him feeding on the neck, but the Life of Adam and Eve is dated to about the 1st century AD. The dating of the Zohar is also a bit odd... Certainly the zohar itself is dated to the 13th century, but the material it is based on undoubtedly traces its way to the Assyrian courts, nearly 3000 years ago. The same mathematical relationships exist on walls in Assyria, that exist in the kabbalah. So is it really fair to say it's as late as 1300? Would love to ask a Vampire about all of this.
They are real btw. Absolutely real.
The Vampire by Montague Summers?
Vampires are real, you can find them with dowsing.
And the larpires show up on cue.
Almost in the same boat.
I'm a vampyr. I wanna learn the ins and outs.
Symptoms are: full schizo and very tired and weak under sunlight. Greatly improove status at night. Blood ingestion fixes me up, mentally and physically of the sun and time deterioration. Can reap partial benefit from tantric psychic feeding.
Also, I've noticed a lot of the vampire threads where I have discussed these things have been removed from the search engines... and the threads deleted on LULZ. Someone is definitely watching these threads. I don't know who or what or why, but some of the information doesn't stick around as long as the rest.
I wouldn't worry about it, sweet child.
It seems inevitable that I will encounter them at some point. I only hope I can be useful...
I'm a vampire but I never drink blood. I'm trying to hit the world record of no blood drank as a vampire
