An Examen of Witches
Compiled in the late 16th century by the chief justice who served as France's inquisitor, this book is the witch-hunter's handbook. It recounts the trial proceedings and accusations - making pacts with the devil, shape-shifting, and other practices of sorcery - for which social outcasts were tortured and condemned.
