The Hammer of Witches: A Complete Translation of the Malleus Maleficarum
Christopher S. Mackay
Cambridge University Press
The Malleus Maleficarum, first published in 1486-7, is the standard medieval text on witchcraft and it remained in print throughout the early modern period. Its descriptions of the evil acts of witches and the ways to exterminate them continue to contribute to our knowledge of early modern law, religion and society. Mackay's highly acclaimed translation, based on his extensive research and detailed analysis of the Latin text, is the only ...

Compendium Maleficarum: The Montague Summers Edition
Francesco Maria Guazzo
The Plague of Renaissance Literature...
The Milanese Monk of the Ambrosini, Francesco Maria Guazzo (also known as "Guaccio")didn't so much WRITE his famous best-selling Demonological compendium of the first decade of the 17th century as COMPILE it, taking from myriad more authoritative sources various tasty selections to appease his dark ecclesiastical appetite for outlandish and freakish historical incident and intrigue. His two main ...
Malleus Maleficarum: The Hammer of Witches
Red and Black Publishers, 2009
The most blood-soaked book in history. Written in 1486, the Malleus Maleficarum served for two and a half centuries as the witch-hunter's bible. It was the legal guidebook for arresting, torturing, trying and executing those charged with witchcraft. The Malleus Maleficarum still teaches a valid lesson on the dangers of intertwining religious fanatacism with political power and allowing it to run amok.
This is the famous treatise on witches, written in 1486 by Heinrich Kramer, an Inquisitor of the Catholic Church, and was first published in Germany.
Oak Grove, 2008
a selection from the Introduction to the Malleus Maleficarum: It has been recognized even from the very earliest times, during the first gropings towards the essential conveniences of social decency and social order, that witchcraft is an evil thing, an enemy to light, an ally of the powers of darkness, disruption, and decay. Sometimes, no doubt, primitive communities were obliged to tolerate the witch and her works owing to fear; in ...
Malleus Maleficarum: Or, The Hammer of Witches (Forgotten Books)
Heinrich Godfrey Kramer
Excellent book on witch-hunting!!!
I found this book to be exceedingly helpful in both finding and prosecuting witches in my local community. Heinrich's points are both easily understood and followed... he has struck a mighty blow against heretics the world over. I eagerly await his next release!
Catholic Church Uber Alle!
I expect sales of this book to rise dramatically now that we have a good old fashioned fire and brimstone Pope back in office. As a former member of the Luftewaffe and SS, Pope Benny knows how to get things done without messing around. In no time at all we'll see Vatican-backed troops marching on the Sodom & Gommorrah's of the modern world as well as all schools, radio and television stations and ...
Malleus Maleficarum: the Classic Study of Witchcraft
the best deal out there..
but that's because it was never proofread. Not even spell-checked. That, or they just stuck it some badly written computer program that did the translating for them. Buy this if you want the MM at a good price, but expect to be annoyed by the fact that there is a typo or bad punctuation in every other paragraph.
The Malleus Maleficarum of Kramer and Sprenger [MALLEUS MALEFICARUM OF KRAMER] [Paperback]
The Malleus Maleficarum
Manchester University Press
It could be good if...
Maxwell-Stuart translate this book in what seems like an effective manner. The footnotes are very good. The only problem, and this is a very big problem, is that way to much of the original text is summarized "to remain within the publisher's word limit." The summaries are clipped and vague. The sections chosen for summary are likely to be some of the most interesting. For example, they ...
Malleus Maleficarum or Malefi-Carum
The Malleus Maleficarum and the Construction of Witchcraft (Studies in Early Modern European History)
Hans Peter Broedel
Manchester University Press
What was witchcraft? Were witches real? How should witches be identified? How should they be judged? Towards the end of the middle ages these were new questions, without answers hallowed by time and authority. Between 1430 and 1500, a number of learned "witch-theorists" attempted to provide the answers, and of these perhaps the most famous are the Dominican inquisitors Heinrich Institoris and Jacob Sprenger, the authors of the Malleus ...
