A book, or rather manual, on witchcraft and witch hunting, written by the french judge and inquisitor Nicolas Remy (or his "latinized" name, Remigius). It was first printed in Lyons in 1595. Literally, the name means demon worshipping.

In 1693 the book was translated to German, and in 1930 Montague Summers translated it to English with the title Daemonolatry.

Like the witch hunting works of Johannes Trithemius and Sprenger & Kramer's Malleus Maleficarum, the Daemonolatreia explains the horrors and dangers of the power of the witches, how to distinguish them, how to torture them into a confession, and finally how to destroy them.
