Cautio criminalis, or, A book on witch trials by Friedrich von Spee( Book )

In 1631, at the epicenter of the worst excesses of the European witch-hunts,Friedrich Spee, a Jesuit priest, published the Cautio Criminalis, a book speaking out against thetrials that were sending thousands of innocent people to gruesome deaths. Spee, who had himselfministered to women accused of witchcraft in Germany, had witnessed firsthand the twisted logic andbrutal torture used by judges and inquisitors. Combined, these harsh prosecutorial measures ledinevitably not only to a confession but to denunciations of supposed accomplices, spreading thecircle of torture and execution ever wider.Driven by his priestly charge ofenacting Christian charity, or love, Spee sought to expose the flawed arguments and methods used bythe witch-hunters. His logic is relentless as he reveals the contradictions inherent in theirarguments, showing there is no way for an innocent person to prove her innocence. And, he questions,if the condemned witches truly are guilty, how could the testimony of these servants and allies ofSatan be reliable? Spee's insistence that suspects, no matter how heinous the crimes of whichthey are accused, possess certain inalienable rights is a timeless reminder for the presentday.The Cautio Criminalis is one of the most important and moving works in thehistory of witch trials and a revealing documentation of one man's unexpected humanity in abrutal age. Marcus Hellyer's accessible translation from the Latin makes it available toEnglish-speaking audiences for the first time.Studies in Early Modern GermanHistory
