Malleus Maleficarum
Project info

This story is inspired by witch-hunt which happened in Europe between 16 and 18 century.

The book Malleus Maleficarum was written by two Dominicans theologs; Heinrich Kramer and Jacobus Sprenger in 1468 and officialy approved by Papa Inocencio VIII.

During the next three century this text was main guidebook for the Inquisition in the war against the witchcraft in Europe.

Witches were usually female.
The reason for this is the suggestion that women are ¨prone to believing and because the demon basically seeks to corrupt the faith he assails them in particular¨. They ¨ are defective in all the powers of soul and body ¨...and are stated to be ¨ more lustful then men.¨

It has been said that the Malleus Maleficarum is one of the most blood-soaked works in human history and led to the prosecution, torture and murder
