Abstract [en]

A discussion of Stanislaw Przybyszewski's (1868-1927) Satanism and ideas about demonic women, situating them in the context of fin-de-siécle use of Satanic symbolism in connection with Anarchism and Feminism. My focus is primarily on two texts, Przybyszewski’s essay Auf den Wegen der Seele (“On the Paths of the Soul”, 1897) and his small historical monograph Die Synagoge des Satan (“The Synagogue of Satan”, 1897), but with sideward glances on several other texts as well, such as his novel Satans Kinder (“Satan’s Children”, 1897), the Homo Sapiens trilogy (1895-1896) and various short stories and essays.
