Jean Bodin composed his manual on witches at the very beginning of the most intense period of persecution in France. The work defines "the witch," elucidates her clandestine operations, and facilitates the task of judges prosecuting the crime of witchcraft, from initial denunciations and interrogations to the stake. Critical edition with scholarly apparatus to facilitate access to this fearsome treatise.
