In his latest book, bestselling author Erik Durschmied looks into the history of the witch delusion and the cruel butchers who hunted and executed so-called witches, from the Middle Ages to modern times. He explores the motivations of the real evil-doers - those who condemned, tortured and executed numerous innocent people. Did they act to uphold the received faith, or was it for self-protection? Was it out of personal vindictiveness or for public recognition? For political aims, or sheer greed to confiscate the wealth of their victims? Ranging from medieval times to, shockingly, the alleged SS Witch Project in the twentieth century, Durschmied tells a gripping and grisly tale. With its strong narrative and colourful cast of characters, including Joan of Arc, Luther, (the real) Dr Faust, the unfortunate children of Salem, and SS chief Heinrich Himmler, Whores of the Devil is a passionate investigation of some of the greatest cruelties in history.
