“All wizards and witches are the professed and sworn enemies of God. O prince, O King, let not witches live!” (Clark)

 – Jeremias Drexel

 

Jeremias Drexel was a 17th-century Jesuit writer and preacher, who ultimately gave up preaching to teach and write. His works surround Christian living, truth, and virtues of life. He wrote against unchastity and sexual immorality due to idleness within the people of the church. Drexel compares these problems with those of mythological kings and heroes such as Achilles. Additional topics Drexel covers include:

  • Gluttony and drunkenness
  • Indulging in luxury
  • Reading of impure and obscene books
    • “Books of this kind are a very plague, an assured poison to the reader”
  • The paradox of virginity and curiosity
  • Viewing pornographic images and pictures of temptation and the struggle of the ‘wandering eyes’
  • Having toxic companions, evil friends
  • Permutation and combination tables

 

In 1645, an edition of the complete works of Drexel were published in German by Godofroy Schönwetter and featured 23 impressive full-page engravings.
