A book, or rather manual
, on witchcraft
and witch hunt
ing, 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 worship
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.
