Summary expansion
The Malleus, which first appeared in Germany in 1487, was written to refute arguments that witchcraft did not exist; describe the forms of witchcraft, and the remedies to be used to counteract a spell; and finally, how to prosecute witches, including how to formally charge an alleged witch, how to conduct a trial, and methods of interrogation
