In it Sinistrari cites the views of saints, scholars and churchmen and their descriptions of a wolrd filled with beings able to assume human shapes in order to haunt and taunt their mortal victims. Scores of contemporary accounts tell of mysterious occurrences, strange encounters and unexplained supernatural activities of evil spirits that plague the bodies and minds of men and women, pass through locked doors, move through thick walls, play havoc with interioer furnishings and more .... Rev. Montague Summers has .. expanded the text with an informative introduction and notes. His edition of this engrossing and important document will be of interest to historians, students of witchcraft and anyone intrigued by the occult."--from back cover.
