About In Mentem Insania

“Fear is a wonderful thing, in small doses. You ride the ghost train into the darkness, knowing that eventually the doors will open and you will step out into the daylight once again.” -Neil Gaiman

History is full of stories of killers, madmen, and nightmarish beasts. As a longtime reader of true crime I have been interested in these kinds of stories. In talking with others, I’ve found that I’m not alone in this interest. This has led to the creation of a monthly column, “In Mentem Insania”.
Each month, I will focus on an aspect of medieval true crime, legends, cults, and oddities. This includes: Erzebeth Bathory, Christman Gniepperteinga, Gilles de Rais, the Fehmgerichte in Westphalia, and the draugr.

If you have heard about something that might be an interesting topic for this column, please contact me at [email protected]. I’m very open to pretty much anything that falls into the “scary and odd” range and happened between the dawn of time and 1600.
