|About the Book|
This is a translation of Jules Michelets La Sorcière. I have titled this text The Sorceress because that is a literal translation of the original French title. The original title of this translation was Satanism and Witchcraft, and it was later retitled Witchcraft, Sorcery and Superstition. And women are at the center of this book: peasant healers, aristocratic noblewomen, and nuns- we get an unparalleled look at the misery that medieval women faced, and some of the ways they rebelled.About Author:Jules Michelet (21 August 1798 – 9 February 1874) was a French historian. He was born in Paris to a family with Huguenot traditions.
