2180 Witch Hunting in Southwestern Germany 1562-1684: The Social and Intellectual Foundations, by H. C. Erik Midelfort (read 19 Jan 1989) This is a thorough study of witch trials in Baden and Wurttemburg from 1562 to 1684. It is not nearly as worthwhile a book as Servants of Satan: The Age of the Witch Hunts, by Joseph Klaits, which I read on 11 Oct 1986. My nine-times great grandmother was the defendant in a witch trial but she was not convicted, and her ordeal was minor compared to what is detailed in this book--but she was not in Baden or Wurttemberg. One wonders why the witch craze is scarcely mentioned in history survey books. ( )
