If you are looking for a book to help you gain an understanding of what it was like for women during the witch hunting days, this is it. A very detailed source of information.

I picked up the MALLEUS MALEFICARUM while still an undergrad... I thought it would be a laugher... Ignorant 15th century priests looking for witches and such. What a silly thing, incomprehensible to the modern mind. This book is NOT a laugher! Quite to the contrary, it gave me my first glimpse into the ironclad perfection of the intellectual medieval mind... Especially the one bent on 'evil'. Kramer and Sprenger weave an intricate and sophisticated web around the reader. This book actually has the power to possess, so tread carefully and don't get 'into it' too much. Their explanation of the "sin against the Holy Ghost" contained in Part One; Question V is certainly worth the price of the book. For me it was one of those formative reads that actually changed my way of thinking; not so much about witches as about that mysterious medieval mind... PLEASE NOTE: Malleus is not an easy read... plan on having a dictionary near by...
