Kryptadia – the 1800’s Secret Journals of Taboo Stories

In this lecture we will dive into the long forgotten “Kryptadia” journals published in a limited prints and in total secret over the time span of 30 years at the end of the 1800’s to the mid 1930’s. The stories and legends were considered too daring to be accessible on the open marked to the public and the limited number of prints were borrowed and traded in total secret amongst an extremely limited number of readers. Most of the tales in “Kryptadia” are of the more erotic kind, and there are stories dating way back to the early medieval times considered so explicit and sinful that storytellers would face horrible punishment if they were caught telling them. The stories we will get to know in this lecture come from all over Europe, and they were collected and written down by many respectable authors that remain anonymous to this very day. 

Warm welcome to an evening of spicy stories and a fascinating piece of literature history.
