The Malleus Maleficarum
MALLEUS MALEFICARUM : The Hammer of The Witches: (Kramer/Sprenger) Translated by Montague Summers. This notorious document was drawn up in 1484 by the Church as a handbook for prelates on how to identify, torture and erradicate Paganism from society. Used as a manual to inflict the most disgusting and horrendous tortures on completely innocent men and women under the guise of God's Holy Writ this book caused hundreds of years of persecution of non-Christians throughout Europe and in particular subjugated womankind. It MUST be read by anyone calling themsleves Pagan today as required reading on our history and an example of the dangers of absolutism. If you want to realise just why the word 'Inquisition' struck terror into the hearts of ordinary folk for hundreds of years this book will explain their methods, tortures, incestuous logic and moral bankruptcy.
