An exhaustive look at the persons and organizations who persecuted witches throughout modern history From the Middle Ages to modern times, this unique history explores the development of the "witch delusion" and uncovers the cruel butchers who hunted and executed so-called witches. It explores in-depth the various motivations behind those who condemned, tortured, and executed numerous innocent people, among them self-protection, personal vindictiveness, public recognition, political aims, and sheer greed. With its strong narrative and colorful cast of characters that includes Joan of Arc, Martin Luther, Dr. Faust, the unfortunate children of Salem, and SS chief Heinrich Himmler, this is a passionate investigation into some of the greatest cruelties in history.
