Drummer of Tedworth

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 The Drummer of Tedworth is a report of supernatural activity by Joseph Glanvill in the West Country of England, in his Saducismus Triumphatus. The book’s Latin title Saducismus Triumphatus means The Defeat of Sadducism or more accurately ‘The Triumph over Saducism’. The Sadducees denied the existence of the soul and possibility of life after death, thus contradicting the doctrines of Christ. As anti-Christ, they were seen by Glanvill as the cohorts of Satan. By Sadducism, Glanvill meant the position something close to that of a modern skeptic, the deliberate denial of the supernatural.
