Rare Witchcraft Book Discovered in Alberta Library

By Alex Ballingall

Even though he thinks the weathered tome is a fascinating cultural treasure, unearthed by chance in a musty section of an Albertalibrary, Andrew Gow doesn’t like to be near it.

“It’s a very, very nasty piece of work, and I can tell you that I don’t like to touch it,” he said.

The book positions itself as a guide to expunge all evil and vanquish the dark forces of witchcraft detailed so vividly in its 150 pages of 15th-century Burgundian French.

    Sounds familiar to another book, Malleus Maleficarum (1486)… It appears to be in the same century.
    To me, it is no different then reading other histories of Last of The Mohicans, or The Aztecs, or books on Slavery …They are all the same in their craziness. All barbaric. Most of which was to conquer land……..murder and oppress . What kind of governing would allow such murderous ideas and then commit it?

    I can’t say it’s (good) to have around. I’m sure that it was quite eerie to read what lurks in the hearts of men back then; however, it is still a piece of puzzlement into a dark history of fear and superstitions. Thank you for posting this.

    Good to have around, IMO, if for no other reason than that “those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.”
