The main purpose of the Malleus Maleficarum was to challenge all arguments against the existence of witchcraft and to instruct magistrates on how to identify, interrogate and convict witches. The “Malleus” was widely used during the Inquisitions and is therefore considered by some to be one of the most bloodstained works in European history.
This e-Book version of the Malleus Maleficarum for Kindle has been specially formatted by the good folks at the “Malleus Maleficarum Online” project (www.MalleusMaleficarum.org) and features a fully functional Table of Contents and detailed Notes substructure. Every note in every chapter links to the Note entry in the notes subtext, resulting in a very useful edition for students or anyone studying the Malleus Maleficarum and Medieval history as related to the Inquisition.
This version of the Malleus Maleficarum includes the English translation first published in 1928 by Rev. Montague Summers, the introduction to the 1928 edition, the Bull of Pope Innocent VIII, the Official Letter of Approbation from the University of Cologne, as well as a Bibliography and detailed notes by Montague Summers, and an introduction by Wicasta Lovelace, curator of the “Malleus Maleficarum Online” project.
