Summary:

This is a survey of primary sources for the history of the witch persecutions. Written late in the 19th Century, this collection doesn't attempt any analysis of the roots of the phenomena other than clerical abuse and mass insanity. Most importantly, these texts give insight into the cascading paranoia which characterizes witch hunts of any historical period.
