Europe's Inner Demons: The Demonization of Christians in Medieval Christendom

by

Europe's Inner Demons: The Demonization of Christians in Medieval Christendom Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Europe's Inner Demons is a fascinating history of the irrational need to imagine witches and an investigation of how those fantasies made the persecutions of the middle ages possible. In addition, Norman Cohn's discovery that some influential sources on European witch trials were forgeries has revolutionized the field of witchcraft, making this one of the most essential books ever written on the subject.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [237]-262) and index.
