The Malleus Maleficarum or "Hammer of Witches" is the most important and infamous of all demonological and witch-hunting manuals in European history. This scholastic textbook details at length the nature, detection and eradication of what it took to be a diabolical, heretical sect of sorcery which served as nothing short of the final putsch on the part of Satan before the Apocalypse itself. In this episode I deep dive into the terrifying world of the Inquisition to better understand this most infamous work and the minds that produced it.
