Given the frequent trust in witchcraft and the lifestyles of legislation opposed to such practices, why did witch trials fail to realize momentum and boost into "witch-crazes" in definite components of early sleek Europe? This publication solutions this question via focussing at the incredibly wealthy criminal documents of the German urban of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. This urban is important in that it skilled a truly restricted development of witch trials--with only one execution for witchcraft--between 1561 and 1652.
