Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An exhaustive look at the persons and organizations who persecuted witches throughout modern history

 

Covering the Middle Ages up through modern times, this unique history explores the development of the "witch delusion" and uncovers the cruel butchers who hunted and executed so-called witches. It explores in-depth the various motivations—including self-protection, personal vindictiveness, public recognition, political aims, and sheer greed—behind those who condemned, tortured, and executed numerous innocent people. With its strong narrative and colorful cast of characters that includes Joan of Arc, Martin Luther, Dr. Faust, the unfortunate children of Salem, and SS chief Heinrich Himmler, this is a passionate investigation into some of the greatest cruelties in history.
