“Miroir de l'Ame Pecheresse, Mirror of a Lost Soul.”
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Devil's Queen: A Novel of Catherine de Medici

“I do not worship their devil. Nor do I worship their other gods--Jesus, Jehovah, the Holy Spirit--but I respect them, for all gods are One.

If this makes me a witch by their definition--very well then, I am a witch, just as surely as they are Christians and murderers.”
Jeanne Kalogridis, The Burning Times
