Description

Were witches real in the Middle Ages? This is a handbook on witchcraft first published in 1628, claiming to expose the entire practice and profession of witchcraft. Based on what we know today, the material may not be entirely accurate. The book is valuable, however, in the sense that it allows one to view the extreme superstition surrounding witchcraft and to better understand the degree of persecution that resulted.show more
