Abstract:

The valley of the bees: A young son of a lord is sent to study with a Brotherhood and is befriended by a fellow member, who in turn leads him on his path to God. When he returns, he finds his father dead, his land barren, and his people with no hope.

Witches' hammer: Tells the true story of the last of the notorious witch hunts in Czechoslovakia in the 1600's. A ruthless inquisitor spins the superstitions of local peasants into religious heresy, finding cause to accuse dozens of innocent men and women of witchcraft. The inquisitor targets nobles and merchants, whose goods and properties are then confiscated. After suffering an array of medieval tortures, most confess and are then burned alive as witches.
