WWW.SHROUDEATER.COM - The Vampire of Zattig (2) - CZECH REPUBLIC
"Magia posthuma auf der Herrschaft Groß-Herrlitz im 18. Jahrhunderte"
in: "Zeitschrift für Geschichte und Kulturgeschichte Österreichisch-Schlesiens", Troppau, 1907/1908
Our previous case in Zattig, however, wasn't the first case in the village. There also is a case that took place in 1711.
"Den 12. Juni 1711 erfolgen dieselben Verordnungen betreffend die Ewa Radlen aus Zattig."
which, as you may have guessed, more or less translates into:
"On the 12th of June, 1711, the same measures are taken against Ewa Radlen from Zattig."
These same measures are: questioning of the farmers, exhumation of the corpse, and cremating it.
We have been given the year of 1711.
Zattig is a small place in the Czech Republic. It has been renamed to Sadek, and can be found about halfway between Bruntal and Opava.
And of course you should get yourself a copy of Josef Zukal's short but interesting article which has much more information than you can find here.
