Summary
"Martin Del Rio's Investigations into Magic deals not only with magic in all its forms, from the manipulation of angelic and demonic powers to straightforward conjuring and illusion, but also with witchcraft, alchemy, astrology, divination, prophecy, and possession by evil spirits. In addition, Martin Del Rio offers judges and confessors practical advice on the most effective ways of dealing with people who are accused of practising magic, and enlivens his whole discussion with anecdotes drawn from a range of sources, including his own experience." "Modern historians and students of the sixteenth century, as well as readers across many interdisciplinary fields, will find this translation a valuable guide to certain modes of early modern thought."--Jacket
