Square tight copy with a reading crease along spine on front cover, a corner crease on back, and covers show light wear. "This classic translation of the most famous of all books on witchcraft defines the anxious antagonism of the Christian Church to the beliefs that found support in the obscure organization of witchcraft. Written in 1486 by two Dominican friars it had a powerful effect on the whole prodcedure of witch accusation and witch trials, and reveals unmistakably the friar's phobia of women and their repugnance at sexual activity.".

Item Description: GRIN Publishing, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 1. Auflage.. Language: German . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Quellenexegese aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - and. Lander - Mittelalter, Fruhe Neuzeit, Note: 10,0, Justus-Liebig-Universitat Gieen, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die vorliegende Arbeit beschaftigt sich mit Inhalt und Aufbau des Hexenhammers von Heinrich Kramer und Jacob Sprenger. Sie bietet eine Darstellung des allgemeinen Bildes einer Hexe in der Fruhen Neuzeit und bespricht, wie der Vorgang der Hexenverfolgung und der Hexenprozesse in Europa und speziell in Polen verlief. Im Fazit werden noch einmal die wichtigsten Fakten zu Malleus Maleficarum und der Hexenverfolgung festgehalten. Die Forschung ist, wenn es um das Thema der Hexenverfolgung in Polen geht, nicht so ausgereift wie die Forschung der deutschen Hexenverfolgung. Daher ist eine intensive Auseinandersetzung mit der polnischen Hexenverfolgung nur begrenzt moglich. Fur die Arbeit wurde vorwiegend deutsche Literatur aus dem 20. Jahrhundert verwendet. Daruber hinaus wurde eine Ubersetzung des Hexenhammers von J.W. Schmidt benutzt. Mit der digitalisierten Form des Hexenhammers und der Auskunft der Mitarbeiter der Herzog-August Bibliothek in Wolfenbuttel, war eine Auswertung der aueren Form des Werkes moglich.

Item Description: GRIN Publishing, Germany, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 1. Auflage.. Language: German . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - and. Lander - Mittelalter, Fruhe Neuzeit, Note: 1,0, Universitat zu Koln (Historisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Seminar, 8 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die folgende Seminararbeit wird sich mit den Auswirkungen des Hexenhammers von Heinrich Kramer auf das Spatmittelalter beschaftigen. Um zu einer berechtigten Beurteilung des Werkes zu gelangen, werden die spezifischen Eigenschaften des Malles gegenuber fruheren Werken gegen Ketzerei analysiert. Warum gelangte der Malleus zu so groer Bedeutung im Spatmittelalter und in der fruhen Neuzeit, obwohl bereits fruher ahnliche Schriften erschienen waren? Zu Beginn der Arbeit soll auf das Verfasserproblem des Hexenhammers eingegangen werden, um danach mit der Frage anzuschlieen, warum ausgerechnet Frauen im Malleus als besonders anfallig fur den Einfluss des Teufels dargestellt werden, was schon durch den Titel Malleus Maleficarum deutlich wird. Nach der Darstellung und Analyse des Frauenbildes im Malleus, werden weitere Spezifika des Malleus betrachtet. Es soll erklart werden, wie sich der fruhere Ketzerprozess, der bis zur Erscheinung des Malleus in Hinsicht auf die Bekampfung von Haresien durch die Kirche existierte, zum Hexenprozess entwickelt hat, in dem weniger das haretische Moment als vielmehr die praktische Zauberei im Vordergrund der Erklarung steht. Zum Schluss wird im Rahmen der Eigenheiten des Malleus auf den Einfluss bzw. die Einflussnahme der weltlichen Gerichtsbarkeit auf den Hexenprozess eingegangen, um auch Traditionen und Veranderungen innerhalb des Kirchenrechts zu beleuchten. Bis zu dieser Stelle der Arbeit wird der eigentliche Inhalt des Malleus und dessen Kapiteleinteilung bewusst nicht naher in Augenschein genommen, da starkere Akzente zu Beginn auf die Besonderheiten dieses Werkes gelegt werden sollen. Der Inhalt wird kurz umrissen, wenn auf den Nurnberger Hexenhammer von Heinrich Kramer eingegangen. Bookseller Inventory # APC9783638831857

Item Description: IBERLIBRO, 2016. TAPA BLANDA. Book Condition: EN MUY BUEN ESTADO. Español, Castellano . El Malleus maleficarun es, sin duda, el más famoso de los libros sobre brujería que se haya escrito hasta el presente. También conocido como El martillo de los brujos, está considerada la obra más infame de la Historia. Las razones sobran para calificarlo de esta manera: fue durante tres siglos & 150;a partir de 1486, año de su primera edición- el recurso fundamental que la Inquisición puso en manos de sacerdotes, magistrados y jueces católicos y protestantes en su combate contra el culto a la brujería. En sus páginas el lector encontrará, con curiosidad a veces, con horror casi siempre, la descripción de diferentes actos considerados impuros o inspirados por el demonio, pero además el consecuente castigo que debían recibir los responsables de tales hechos. Así, las inenarrables torturas mentales y físicas a que fueron sometidas aquellas personas que el poder unificado de los dos reinos, el celestial y el terrenal, consideraba culpables de herejía cobran una crueldad y un realismo nunca vistos ni antes ni después en el devenir humano. La librería ofrece por tiempo limitado un descuento del 10%. El precio original de este ejemplar era de 35.00 EUR. Bookseller Inventory # 9999903104803/16717

Item Description: [Speyer, Peter Drach, before April 1487]., 1487. Folio (215 x 294 mm). 129 ff. (wants final blank). 48 lines, double-columned, gothic type. Rubricated, with lombardic initials in red and blue, occasional pen flourishes, paragraph marks at beginning of chapter headings, some capital strokes. 19th-c. white paper boards with printed paper spine label. Stored in custom-made full green morocco gilt clamshell box. First edition of the notorious "Hammer of Witches", which laid down procedures for finding out and convicting witches. Due to the innovation of the printing press, it contributed significantly to the early modern witch craze. "The most important and most sinister work on demonology ever written. It crystallized into a fiercely stringent code previous folklore about black magic with church dogma on heresy, and, if any one work could, opened the floodgates of the inquisitorial hysteria [. it was] the source, inspiration, and quarry for all subsequent treatises on witchcraft" (Robbins, Encyclopaedia of Witchcraft and Demonology). The book was published and republished in at least 13 editions up to 1520, then revived from the late 16th century, undergoing at least 16 editions between 1574 and 1669, as well as numerous editons in German, French and English. Complete copies of the first edition are rare, and only a few copies are found in American institutions. - Upper cover stained and soiled, first three pages of text with some soiling and staining, neat repair to final printed leaf. All in all, a remarkably fine, clean copy from the famous Donaueschingen library of the princes of Fürstenberg with their printed spine title and shelfmark "298" on the spine label (repeated in pencil on recto of f. 1). HC* 9238. Goff I-163. British Library IB.8581 (acquired in 1867 but not recorded in BMC). ISTC ii00163000. Coumont I4.2. Danet 16. Graesse III, 425. Bookseller Inventory # 34028
