Summary: This 104 reel collection spans the 15th to the 20th century concentrating primarily on the 16th to the 18th centuries. In addition to the classic texts, the collection includes anti-persecution writings, works by penologists (those who administered torture), legal and church documents, exposes of persecutions, philosophical writings and transcripts of trials and exorcisms. Included are the pronouncements of advocates of witch persecution - Binsfield, Boguet, Del Rio, Remi- which can be compared and contrasted to the courageous wanting of Bekker, Loher, Loos, Scot, Spee- who doubted the validity of witch believers and witch trials. The majority of texts are in Latin, English, and German, but the collection contains documents in French, Italian, Portuguese, Danish, Dutch, and Spanish.
