This, the most authoritative and comprehensive body of information about witchcraft and demonology ever compiled in a single volume, was written by an outstanding scholar who spent years accumulating material from the great libraries of the world. Here is a full scale compendium of fact, history and legend about every phase of this fascinating subject from its origins in medieval times to its last eruptions in the eighteenth century. Included are articles about witches sabbat and pact, night flight and metamorphosis, incubi and succubi, verbatim reports of trials, werewolves and vampires, devils, demoniacal possession and exorcism, poltergeists, the classical demonologists, the Inquisition, how and why witches were accused, barbarous tortures, and accounts of the major witches trials of Europe and New England. Accompanying the text are 250 illustrations, many published here for the first time, from rare books, contemporary prints and old manuscripts.
