COMMENTS ON THE HISTORY OF WIZARDRY AND WITCHCRAFT PROCESSES IN THE LATE MIDDLE AGES AND EARLY MODERN PERIOD
Languages of publication
The essay outlines the nature of sources concerning the history of wizardry and witchcraft processes in the Bohemian lands from the Middle Ages until the second half of the 18th century. The main source of history of wizardry and witchcraft processes in the High and Late Middle Age Bohemian lands comes from narrations. The most important sources of the Early Modern Period until the second half of the 17th century come from the preserved pitch (black) books (smolné knihy). The main sources regarding wizardry and witchcraft processes in the Bohemian lands (and partly in Moravia) from the last quarter of the 17th century until the end of witchcraft in Bohemia (the 1750s) come from sentence manuals of the appeal court which probably registered most of the performed trials.
