I thought I’d add to my recent post on the Vampire subculture by adding a link to “The Bloody Gospel”, an interesting contextualisation experiment originally housed at Pale Rider’s website.
Unfortunately, it turns out it is now offline. Fortunately, however a few of the articles, including the “Christ of the Vampires” study were rescued from archieves by Nitallica, a Vampire, and are now hosted at The Coven.
This in itself would seem to be a testament to the power of cultural contextualisation.
As another digression, why not also check out Christian Goth, a website for Christian goths obviously.
