Book News Annotation:

Ginzburg explores the world of the benandanti, Italian peasants charged with fighting spiritual battles while asleep to protect the harvest. He pours through hundreds of documents to explore how the leaders of the Inquisition dealt with this unusually open declaration of what the Catholic Church called witchcraft. The theme of the text is the revelation of the insidious way the Church slowly but surely changed folkways and folk beliefs into satanism and witchcraft. The book is an extremely well documented and fascinating look at the clash of cultures. Several woodcuts are included. The book includes a new preface.
