9780584109092: Compendium Maleficarum

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.

Review:

The Compendium Maleficarum was the ultimate field guide for the beginning demonologist in the 17th century. Guazzo's Compendium was accepted by his contemporaries as the authoritative manuscript on witchcraft. Later demonologists continued to hail the conciseness and clarity with which Guazzo analyzes the practice. The Compendium not only gives an organized account of the subject matter but provides a glimpse at the Christian view of witchcraft during the early 17th century.
