"Dictionnaire Infernal" является книгой по демонологии, организованной в адской иерархии. Книга была написана Жак Альбен Симон Коллин де Планси и впервые опубликована в 1818 году.

Мыслитель-вольнодумец Жак Альбен Симон Коллин де Планси, находился под влиянием Вольтера. В 1830-1837 жил в Брюсселе. После возвращения во Францию покаялся в заблуждениях и стал ревностным католиком.

Автор книги выступал также как типограф и издатель старинных хроник, легенд, собственных сочинений. Жак де Планси стал известен, благодаря своему скандальному труду «Адский словарь» (1818) или «словарь преисподни». Это издание было переведено на многие языки и многократно переиздавалось, вплоть до нынешнего дня.

The Dictionnaire Infernal (English: Infernal Dictionary) is a book on demonology, organised in hellish hierarchies. It was written by Jacques Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy and first published in 1818. There were several editions of the book, but perhaps the most famous is the edition of 1863, in which sixty-nine illustrations were added to the book. These illustrations are drawings which try to depict the descriptions of the appearance of several demons. Many of these images were later used in S. L. MacGregor Mathers's edition of The Lesser Key of Solomon though some of the images were removed.

The book was first published in 1818 and then divided into two volumes, with six reprints and many changes between 1818 and 1863. This book attempts to provide an account of all the knowledge concerning superstitions and demonology.

A review in 1822 read:
“ Anecdotes du dix-neuvime sicle ou historiettes indites, anedoctes rcentes, traits et mots peu connus, aventures singulires, citations, rapprochements divers et pices curieuses, pour servir l'histoire des murs et de l'esprit du sicle o nous vivons compar aux sicles passs Anecdotes of the nineteenth century or stories, recent anecdotes, features and little known words, singular adventures, various quotations, compilations and curious pieces, to be used for the history of the customs and the mind of the century in which we live, compared with centuries past. ”

The cover page for the 1826 edition reads:
“ Dictionnaire infernal ou Bibliothque Universelle sur les tres, les personnages, les livres, les faits et les choses, qui tiennent aux apparitions, la magie, au commerce de l'enfer, aux divinations, aux sciences secrtes, aux grimoires, aux prodiges, aux erreurs et aux prjugs, aux traditions et aux contes populaires, aux superstitions diverses, et gnralement toutes les croyances merveilleuses, surprenantes, mystrieuses et surnaturelles Infernal Dictionary, or, a Universal Library on the beings, characters, books, deeds, and causes which pertain to the manifestations and magic of trafficking with Hell; divinations, occult sciences, grimoires, marvels, errors, prejudices, traditions, folktales, the various superstitions, and generally all manner of marvellous, surprising, mysterious, and supernatural beliefs".

Influenced by Voltaire, Collin de Plancy initially did not believe in many superstitions. For example, the book reassures its contemporaries as to the torments of Hell: "To deny that there are sorrows and rewards after death is to deny the existence of God; since God exists, it must be necessarily so. But only God could know the punishments meted out to the guilty, or the place that holds them. All the catalogues made herebefore are only the fruit of a more or less disordered imagination. Theologians should leave to the poets the depiction of Hell, and not themselves seek to frighten minds with hideous paintings and appalling books"(p. 164).

But the skepticism of Collin de Plancy grew blurred with time. By the end of 1830 he surely becomes an enthusiastic Catholic, to the consternation of his former admirers.

In later years, De Plancy rejected and modified his past works, thoroughly revising his Dictionnaire Infernal to put it in conformity with the canons of the Roman Catholic Church. This influence is most clearly seen in the sixth and final 1863 edition of the book, which is decorated with many engravings and seeks to affirm the existence of the demons. Collin de Plancy finished his career with a collaboration with the Abb Migne to complete a Dictionary of the occult sciences or theological Encyclopaedia, described by some as an authentic work of Roman Catholic doctrine.

Many articles written in the Dictionnaire Infernal illustrate the author's vacillation between rationalism, faith and willingness to believe without evidence. For example, he admits the possible effectiveness of chiromancy, while rejecting cartomancy: "It is certain that chiromancy, and especially physiognomy, have at least some plausibility: they draw their predictions from signs which relate to features which distinguish and characterize people; of lines which the subjects carry with themselves, which are the work of nature, and that someone can believe significant, since they are unique to each individual. But the cards, merely human artifacts, not knowing either the future, nor the present, nor the past, have nothing of the individuality of the person consulting them. For a thousand different people they will have the same result; and consulted twenty times about the same subject, they will produce twenty contradictory productions" (p. 82).
