INDEX OF AUTHORS

Sociologique_, Premiere Annee, 1898, esp. pp. 44, 46-47, 48, 50-57. 

Crawley (_Mystic Rose_, p. 212) opposes Durkheim's view as to the 

significance of blood in relation to the attitude towards women. 

 

[365] _British Association Report on North Western Tribes of Canada_, 

1890, p. 581. 

 

[366] _Laws of Manu_, iv, 41. 

 

[367] Pliny, who, in Book VII, Chapter XIII, and Book XXVIII, Chapter 

XXIII, of his _Natural History_, gives long lists of the various good and 

evil influences attributed to menstruation, writes in the latter place: 

"Hailstorms, they say, whirlwinds, and lightnings, even, will be scared 

away by a woman uncovering her body while her monthly courses are upon 

her. The same, too, with all other kinds of tempestuous weather; and out 

at sea, a storm may be stilled by a woman uncovering her body merely, even 

though not menstruating at the time. At any other time, also, if a woman 

strips herself naked while she is menstruating, and walks round a field of 

wheat, the caterpillars, worms, beetles, and other vermin will fall from 

off the ears of corn." 

 

[368] See Bourke, _Scatologic Rites of all Nations_, 1891, pp. 217-219, 

250 and 254; Ploss and Max Bartels, _Das Weib_, vol. i; H.L. Strack, _Der 

Blutaberglaube in der Menschheit_, fourth edition, 1892, pp. 14-18. The 

last mentioned refers to the efficacy frequently attributed to menstrual 

blood in the Middle Ages in curing leprosy, and gives instances, occurring 

even in Germany to-day, of girls who have administered drops of menstrual 

blood in coffee to their sweethearts, to make sure of retaining their 

affections. 

 

[369] See, e.g., Dufour, _Histoire de la Prostitution_, vol. iii, p. 115. 

 

[370] Dr. L. Laurent gives these instances, "De Quelques Phenomenes 

Mecaniques produits au moment de la Menstruation," _Annales des Sciences 

Psychiques_, September and October, 1897. 

 

[371] _Journal Anthropological Society of Bombay_, 1890, p. 403. Even the 

glance of a menstruating woman is widely believed to have serious results. 

See Tuchmann, "La Fascination," _Melasine_, 1888, pp. 347 _et seq._ 

 

[372] As quoted in the _Provincial Medical Journal_, April, 1891.
