28 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in Italian and English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the titles, Pasolini informs viewers that it is "1944-45 nell' Italia Settentrionale durante l'occupazione nazifascista [in Northern Italy during the Nazi-Fascist occupation]." That, along with the "Bibliografia essenziale" that precedes it, indicates that a political meaning, dealing with the corruption of absolute power, was uppermost in the filmmakers mind. Motives aside, Pasolini's interpretation of the Marquis de Sade's eighteenth century opus of torture and degradation remains banned in many countries, is deemed one of the most disturbing films ever made, and is still-- 30 years after its initial release-- notorious and controversial
