Garwaf is then the Norman equivalent of the Breton bisclaveret. And thei be cleped Werewolfes for men shulde be war of hem. In Limousin are found leberoun and leberou. In Dauphine a werewolf is lamiaro. The word brouch sometimes borouch also means a werewolf, although it is more generally employed to denote a wizard, a sorcerer.
The Italian term for a werwolf is lupo mannaro or mannaro; the Portuguese lobis-homem or lycanthropo , 53 In Spain the word is lobombre :. Paul Aigineta, whose extant work is conveniently known as De Re Medica Libri Septem , 57 probably flourished in the latter half of the seventh century. He employs the term XvKavOpconia, the disease. Galen mentions the voaog KwavOpcoxog 58 a cognate formation , in which malady the patient imagines himself to be a dog, and the grammarian Joannes Tzetzes in his Chiliades terms the Minotaur fioavOpconog 59 E.
He does not appear to recognize the meaning werewolf. It is quite possible, of course, that even to-day XvKavOpconoq may be employed in some obscure and obsolescent dialect, but the only place where it seems to be definitely recorded of late is in a tale given by J. Antoine Th. The ordinary Greek word for a vampire is fipvKiXaKag, vrykolakas, and this has a long and interesting history, being derived in the first place from a Slavonic word which in all Slavonic languages save one — the Serbian — is the exact equivalent of werewolf.
Old Slav. Slovenian, volkdlak, vukodlak, vulkodlak; Bulgarian, vrEkolak; Kr. Man beachte lit. Der vlJ kodlakJ ist der Werwolf der Deutschen, woraus mlat. Neuri in terra Tatarorum, qui mutari possunt in lupos. In the Serbian language only does this word, whence is taken the Greek vrykolakas , mean rather a vampire than a werewolf. It is probable that this is to be explained by the fact that it is generally held among all Slavonic peoples that the man who has during his life been a werewolf almost necessarily becomes a vampire after his death.
None the less a vampire need not once have been a werewolf, and the two must be most carefully distinguished. They are entirely different, separate, and apart. The Slavonic word for vampire is that which we have taken over in English, vampiru.

Davon vepiresvam se, vampiresvam se. The former is dead; the latter is fearfully alive, although there has been much confusion and there is indeed a connection of a sort between the two. Moreover, Mr. Nun sind zwar Werwolf und Vampyr im Grande ganz verschiedene Wesen, indem man unter jenem einem lebendigen Menschen versteht, der sich zu Zeiten in einer alles zerfleischenden Wolf verwandelt, unter diesem dagegen einen verstorbenen, der aus seinem Grabe wieder kommt und den Lebenden durch Aussaugen ihres Blutes den Untergang bereitet; und der neugriechische fiovpKoXaKaq entspricht nur dem letzteren.
Da indessen doch beide blutgierige, auf Menschenmord ausgehende Geschopfe sind, und der Vampyr auch seinerseits, gleich dem Werwolf, Thiergestalt anzunehmen vermag, so konnten sie in der Vorstellung des Volkes leicht mit einander vermengt werden und demzu folge der Name des einen auf den Begriff des anderen ubergehen Wirklich lasst sich dieser Vorgang bei slavischen Stammen sicher nachweisen, B. Hier durch wird die Slavicitat des Namens fiovpicdlaKag uber jeden Zweifel gehoben.
Hanush 73 was informed by a Greek of Mytilene that there were two distinct kinds of vrykolakes, the one sort being men already dead the vampire , the other living men who were subject to a weird somnambulism which sent them forth ravening, and this particularly on moonlight nights. Amongst other shepherds who were proved to be addicted to werewolfery there is the notorious case of Pierre Burgot and Michel Verdun, a couple of lycanthropie sorcerers who were tried at Besan 9 on in December, , and sentenced to be burned alive by the Inquisitor General, Frere Jean Boin, O P.
He relates how in Cyprus whilst excavations were being carried out under the auspices of the British Museum during the spring of , the directors heard from their workmen several stories concerning the detection of vrykolakes. In one particular village the inhabitants having suffered terribly from the depredations of a nocturnal marauder, armed themselves and kept a strick look out for the evil scourge.
Before long in the moonlight watches they espied a vrykolakas , and one of the company either with gun or sword succeeded in wounding the monster, who, however, escaped and fled away into the shadows. The next day it was observed that a certain man in the village, who had not been among the picket, was marked with a wound exactly corresponding to the hurt inflicted on the vrykolakas the night before.
When he was nearly interrogated the variet at length confessed that he was indeed a vrykolakas and the nocturnal visitant of ill. I myself can add a quota of evidence, as during my travels in Greece I heard the word vrykolakas employed by a peasant to describe a man strongly suspect of sorcery who, as it was firmly believed, wandered abroad at night for purposes of rapine and ravishment, and who had woefully assaulted individuals and tom out the throats of flocks.
Whether this wretch assumed or was seen in the shape of a wolf I could not exactly learn. Ka[ fiovpicoXaKaq. Unde tamen ista vulgo infixa sit fama in tantum, ut in maledictis versipelles habeat, indicabitur. Gregory Nanzianzen, 82 c. Chari oph. Haud scio an eadem acceptione Leu waste legitur in aliis Lit. Nor is it merely a grim superstition; it is a terrible and dangerous truth, and one, moreover, which is by no means confined to Europe alone. A serious belief in some metamorphosis or transformation may be found over the whole wide world.
It is not necessarily a change into the wolf, for there are records in other countries of shape- shifting to a very wide variety of animals. In Northern Europe the shape thus assumed was called hamr; the process of changing at skipta homum or at hamz, the travelling in such a form hamfarir; and the supernatural strength acquired by such metamorphosis hamremmi. But it must be carefully borne in mind that the soul remains unchanged, and that therefore the eye, which is the mirror of the soul, is also unchanged.
In Scandinavian lore no animal is more highly esteemed than the Bear. He is considered rational, and in the Finnbogi saga Finnbogi converses with him, calling him bessi. Among the most famous hamrammir were the berserkir, the bear- men, or were-bears. Their skin is called bjarnahamr , and they have the enormous strength of a bear, which state, however, alternates with extreme lassitude.
Among the gods and heroes of Norse legend transformations are common. They are often effected by putting on the skins of beasts or fur and feather mantles. The werebadger and the weredog are also sorcerers, sometimes it may be friendly sorcerers, in animal shape. Whilst yet large tracts of every country, steppes and moorland, sierra and wold, upland, fell and plain, were utterly deserted and only trodden by man with peril and mortal danger to himself, the wolf proved a fearful foe.
He dwelt in the heart of those impenetrable forests which long continued his veritable strongholds, fortresses whence he could not be dislodged, Riddlesdale and Bowland, Sherwood and Bere and Irwell in England; Ettrick, Braemar, Rothiemurchus, Invercauld in Scotland; in Ireland Kilmallock, the wilds of Kerry, the Wicklow mountains, Shillela; in France, Fontainebleau, Vincennes, the thick-hedged slopes of the Jura and Vosges; in Germany and central Europe the Schwarzwald, the Bohmerwald, Wald-Viert el, and many more.
Monarchs hunted him, and legislated and offered rich rewards for his destruction. But for many a hundred years and hundred years again did the wolf defy all attempts at extirpation.
What better guise, what better shape of fear and ferocity could the shape-shifting sorcerer in Europe assume? The werewolf is the main object of our study; the werewolf who is metamorphosed by black magic, by occult and most hideous bedevilment. Permissu summi Dei illi spiritus sensibus incomperti se corporibus insinuant, receptique visceribus valetudinem bonam vastant: somnia terrent, ac formidine animam quatiunt.
It is true that the physicians nicely distinguish two kinds of lycanthropy; the one arising from possession by the Devil, the other natural, as Daniel Sennert says. At which point it is necessary to emphasize very explicitly the difference between lycanthropy and werwolfery, since these are two diverse and heterogeneous things, although both are clearly of a Satanic origin.
Bom at Breslau on 25th November, , Daniel Sennert was early distinguished by his great parts and his intense application to study. He lectured summa cum laude at Wittenburg, and although there were indeed those who said that so vast was his library learning he excelled more in the theoretic rather than in the practic, none the less he was in appointed body physician to George I, Elector of Saxony.
Sennert died of the plague at Wittenburg on 21st July, , being 65 years old. One of his most famous works is the Practica Medicina, published 4to For as an old practisian, he knows well inough what humor domines most in anie of vs, and as a spirite hee can subtillie waeken vp the same, making it peccant, or to abounde, as he thinkes meete for troubling of vs, when God will so permit him.
Daniel Sennert inquires whether diseases can be brought upon a man by means of spells and black magic, so that such a one will wither, consume and decay, peak and pine, and even fall away into death. It is universally agreed that if such an evil charm can prevail it will be wrought in one or more of three ways: firstly, by a look, a malign glance, the evil eye; secondly, by the voice, the mutter of some occult rune, and especially by presumptuously overpraising and in scorn extolling him to be harmed ; thirdly, by a touch, a contact, exsufflation or gesture.
Have these charms, these cantrips, this abacadabra, and these sigils any evil influence in themselves, and if not why then are they employed by sorcerers and witches when about their foul businesses? That is wrought by the Devil with the co-operation of the will of the witch, who prays and urges him to accomplish the evil act, the blighting of crops, the smiting of cattle with murrain or man with sickness, whatever the intention may be. Yet these words and gestures have a very deep and vital significance not per se but per accidens.
They are the symbols and witnesses of the unholy pact between Satan and the sorcerer, and blasphemy moreover possesses of itself a compelling attraction for evil spirits, so that in a very real sense the fiend, urged and reminded by these evocations, performs his part of the contract and will inevitably demand although not in right nor in justice that the other conditions also be fulfilled at the appointed time. Moreover, Satan in his boundless pride is always first and foremost desirous of homage and worship, that adoration due to God alone. Now the witch by these spells and charms, which are the medial but not essential instrumentality of working evil, definitely pays that homage to the powers of evil which the demon craves and demands.
Therefore by no means must they be omitted or forborne. Having made clear this important circumstance we return to the treatise of Sennert. In the first place Sennert is demonstrably in error when he writes that in his opinion warlocks and evil folk cannot injure others by a look, and he inclines to reduce any ill results which follow from overlooking to the effects of imagination aggravated by terror and alarm, so that those weak subjects who are prone to an epilepsy or hysterical affections might indeed fall ill after but not owing to the malignant glance of some reputed witch. Setting aside the possibilities and powers of hypnotism, and the horrible influence of the evil eye which cannot be gainsaid, since there are the famous cases of the eye-biting witches of Ireland ; and S.
Beliefs and practices relating to the evil eye, all extremely similar in nature, are found the whole world over from the earliest times. The Etruscans and the ancient Egyptians feared the bale of the evil eye. A young gallant of Lisbon endeavouring to gain the love of a maiden aged 16, the child of worthy and wealthy parents, had recourse to a witch. This hag moulded a wax image of the girl and used various incantations, with the result that the victim fell into an extraordinary sickness that baffled the physicians, who deemed she was suffering from some affection of the womb.
Before she was finally freed she vomited a creature like a mouse. He points out that the Devil is most skilled in poisons, that he instructs his servants in the art of venefices, and in many cases no doubt they bring about the illness owing to the subtle introduction of some toxicant. Some diseases which are natural they heighten and aggravate; others they induce by their powders and unguents. The Devil works on natural causes to produce disease. He also procures sterility and abortion. He can also hurt and harm men by sudden violence.
He mocks his slaves by glamour and illusion. Although the evil is not done by the power of the witches, they are none the less equally guilty. Sennert replies: No, it is not lawful. This, however, remains a very difficult and dubious question, and although Sennert is so definite in his negative, the conclusion is not quite so easy. The Venerable Duns Scotus, Blessed Henry of Segusio, Godfrey of Fontaines, Ubertirio of Casale, Francesco Maria Guazzo, and other authorities not a few argue that it is permissible to remove witchcraft even by superstitious and vain means, since it is meritorious to destroy the works of the Devil, which indeed is hardly to be disputed.
On the other hand, S. Thomas, S. Bonaventura, S. Albertus Magnus, Peter a Palude, Boguet, and other great names maintain a contrary opinion. He decides that it is not lawful, inasmuch as the wizard cannot perform the operation without recourse to the aid of Satan, which is in itself a heinous sin, and he who requests or induces another to commit a sin himself becomes the partaker of and participator in that sin.
Cultural information for education and research
Assuredly we must not consent to nor yet take part, however remotely, in any magical practices or casting of spells. But it is the direct opposite of consenting to a thing if we destroy that thing. A spell may not then be counter-checked by another spell, but it may be dissolved by burning the instrument of evil. These two Franciscan theologians base their judgment upon S.
It is argued that it does not follow that because a witch has learned her art from an evil source, every exercise of that art or every result of that art must necessarily be evil. Secundum Petrum Aureolum [l. Si tunc est aliquis dispositio actualiter facere aliquid maleficium ut aliquid destruat possum illo uti ad bonum meum. Dun Scotus is then cited. Nec in hoc est infidelitas aliqua, quia destructio non ad quies cit operibus diaboli, sed credit demonem posse vexare et velle fatigare dum tale signum durat.
Et destructio signi tabs imponit finem vexationis. Potest etiam destruere quis maleficia per sacrata: adjurationes divitias: orationes et hujusmodi meritoria. They conclude that we must distinguish the various classes and kinds of remedies. There are, in fine, three general conditions whereby any remedy is, in ordinary circumstances, rendered unlawful. First, when the spell is removed through the agency of another witch, and by further witchcraft, that is to say, by some evil power.
Secondly, when the spell is removed not by a witch but by an honest person in such a way, however, that it is placed upon another individual. Thirdly, when the spell is removed by an honest person and not even placed upon another, but when some open or tacit invocation of devils or operation of black magic is employed in the process. At the same time there are remedies which, if they do not injure another person, may be tolerated even should they smack somewhat of superstitious usage and vanity. Further details can be read in the Malleus Maleficarum , part ii, question 2, introduction, to which reference should be made.
I will go further and subscribe to Dominic Soto, who says that it is praiseworthy and meritorious to destroy these things, since thereby the charm is dissolved. Pietro Pipemo, a physician of Benevento, who was also an excellent theologian, has written at length and very learnedly in his De Magicis Affectibus, horum Dignotione, Prcenotione, Curatione, Medica, Stratagemmatica, Divina, plerique Curationibus Electis of natural remedies and of superstitious charms and formulas in sickness. Pipemo argues his case well and is undoubtedly in the right.
Any object or instrument of sorcery should be burned, and it is important to get rid of and consign to the flames any articles which have been overlooked. I have myself known so ordinary and commonplace a thing as a pair of curtains to which a spell was attached. A woman, afterwards known to have dealt in curious arts, who lived in a certain family, laid some charm upon a pair of blue richly brocaded curtains which usually hung in the drawing-room of the house.
The curtains were of themselves costly and fine; they were handsome and much admired, so that the woman in question judged the family would never consent to replace them or pack them away out of use. When she left the service, which incidentally was in a disagreeable manner, the spell began to work. The family moved from one house to another, and in those years ill-luck always followed.
The blue curtains naturally hung in each drawing-room window. At last, owing to various circumstances, suspicion was aroused. The curtains were taken down, and if not destroyed, have been discarded, and are carefully stored out of sight. It is certain that evil may attach itself to possessions, to jewellery and gems, to objects of value and objects of comparatively no worth, to pictures, to miniatures and photographs, and, almost especially perhaps, to articles of furniture.
It may not be unfitting to give a striking example of this, as I have read and am very well assured is both recent and true. A young couple, who live in a small but ancient coast town in Devonshire, after a courtship unmarred by any cloud, were married. The husband, who was about twenty-five years old, had worked with one firm for seven years, bearing a remarkably steady reputation.
They spent a brief honeymoon in London, and then returned to their new home. One night, about a fortnight later, the young fellow came home completely intoxicated. His bride was aghast. The next day he was truly penitent, reproaching himself most bitterly.
It was the first time that he had ever drunk to excess and he was usually content with just one glass of beer. About a month later they brought him home one night dead drunk. After this he was miserable and full of remorse. A few weeks later the same thing happened, he again got hopelessly drunk. This sibyl came to the house and at once pointed to a certain piece of furniture, a large old-fashioned arm- chair, which had been given to the young couple as a wedding present, and in which the husband usually sat of an evening.
If you take my advice you will break it up and bum. Her husband never showed the slightest inclination to drink. The history of the chair was traced. It had once belonged to a butcher, who was a hardened drunkard, and who in a delirious fit had killed himself whilst sitting in it. Sennert is of opinion that a man may justly resort to threats and blows in order to compel a witch to remove a spell or unlock a charm. It is indeed natural that one who has been harmed either in himself, those dear to him, or his goods, should adopt violent methods, and they are to my mind even praiseworthy, for he is thus showing his detestation of the witch, her master, and his abhorrence of the black art.
Peter, debates whether a witch, terrified by threats and blows, commits a fresh sin by transferring to an ox or any brute animal the deadly spell she has cast upon the son of the man who trounced her. The conclusion is that the hag is guilty of a fresh sin inasmuch as she must have recourse to the demon to convey the spell from the sufferer and lay it elsewhere, whilst the father is in no wise to be held to blame since his only object is to save his child, and he is not bound to know by what methods the woman works.
A spell was cast upon a farmer named Pittlik, who was seized by a mysterious sickness which in the course of months brought him wellnigh to the grave, and which the doctors were unable to cure. One night he saw a hag who caught him by the throat, and muttered some horrid blasphemy.
His relatives resolved to watch for the witch, and accordingly night after night they lay in wait. About a week passed, when there came one midnight a soft tapping and an aged woman crept into the room. The watchers flung themselves on her with sticks and axes, but unfortunately deprived her of life.
Nevertheless, from that moment Pittlik was completely cured. The court justly acquitted the accused since the case pointed to the existence of a witch, and they had acted under irresistible compulsion. At a second trial for homicide the family were sentenced to short terms of imprisonment, which were reduced by the supreme court. I understand a third trial was ordered. But it is highly advisable also that, if there be manifest signs of some supernormal malady, strange, irregular, and unusual symptoms, the aid of the Church be required, yet not upon any light cause or occasion.
In his final chapter, De divina curatione, the doctor writes with a good deal of unction of exorcism. Pietro Pipemo touches very lightly upon lycanthropy, and seems inclined to suppose that it is not due to demoniacal possession. Marcellus Sidetes, a native of Side in Pamphylia, who was bom towards the end of the first century, and lived in the reigns of Hadrian and Antoninus Pius, a. Schneidero, l. Those labouring under lycanthropia go out during the night imitating wolves in all things and lingering about sepulchres until morning.
You may recognize such persons by these marks: they are pale, their vision feeble, their eyes dry, tongue very dry, and the flow of the saliva stopped; but they are thirsty, and their legs have incurable ulcerations from frequent falls. Such are the marks of the disease. You must know that lycanthropia is a species of melancholy which you may cure at the time of the attack, by opening a vein and abstracting blood to fainting, and giving the patient a diet of wholesome food. Let him use baths of sweet water, and then milk- whey for three days, and purging with the hiera from colocynth twice or thrice.
After the purgings use the theriac of vipers, and administer those things mentioned for the cure of melancholy. In chronic cases evacuation, by vomiting with hellebore. All the other authorities give much the same account of this species of melancholy as Paulus Avicenna recommends the application of the actual cautery to the sinciput when the other remedies fail.
Haly Abbas describes the disease by the name of melancholia canina. He says the patient delights to wander among tombs, imitating the cries of dogs; that his colour is pale; his eyes misty tenebricosi , dry, and hollow; his mouth parched; and that he has marks on his limbs of injuries which he has sustained from falls. He recommends the same treatment as our author: indeed he evidently merely translates this section of Paulus.
Alsaharavius seems also to allude to this disease by the name of melancholia canina. Oribasius was probably bom about a. Suidas and Philostorgius call him a native of Sardes in Lydia, but Eunapius, who was his friend, writes that he was bom at Pegamus in Mysia, the native place of Galen. However that may be, Oribasius early acquired a great professional reputation, and was a particular favourite with Julian the Apostate, although under the succeeding emperors he was justly exiled owing to his enmity against the Christians.
He was living at least as late as a. Of Oribasius three extant works are considered genuine. It has never been published in the original Greek, but a Latin version by Joannes Baptista Rasarius was printed at Venice, 8vo, Joannes Actuarius lived at Constantinople towards the end of the thirteenth century. Mathisius, which first appeared at Venice, 4to, His works are included in the Medicae Artis Principes of H. Stephens, Paris, folio, Schemitzius will have it common in Livonia.
He wrote many medical treatises which were accepted as of great authority. The De Morbis qui in singulis partibus humani capitis incidere consueverunt was first printed at Leyden , 4to. Refert D. Schenckius Historia mira ex lo. Fincelio, libro 2. Patavii lupus sibi videbatur agricola anno Multosque in agris insiliit, trucidavitque. Tandem non sine difficultate captus, confidenter se asseveravit verum esse lupum, discrimen solum existere in pelle cum pilis inuersa. Cognito vero hominis errore, eum chirurgis tradunt curandum, sed post dies non multos exspiravit.
If necessary, the cautery. Weyer describes the symptoms very exactly, and recommends much the same course of treatment, although he is perhaps a little more detailed in the account of the various remedies. He also quotes William of Brabant, and the famous history given by Job Fincel. We shall have occasion to return to Weyer when dealing with other aspects of lycanthropy. Weyer is quoted, and indeed largely drawn upon, by Johann Georg Schenck, a celebrated physician of Fribourg, where he was bom towards the end of the sixteenth century.
Differt etiam ab una specie karabiti quae est cum daemonio, quoniam cum hac mania non est febris sed karabitus est cum se. Cutubut autem est species melancholiae plurimum eveniens in februario, non exspectans usque ad ver, propter sub-tilitatem humoris melancholici plurimum Et totum istud facit diligendo solitutidem et elongationem ab hominibus.

Indeed I have read that after several years it was completely cured. The treatment is the same as that when dealing with lunacy. Exsiliunt quippe noctu, adque diem usque inter sepulchra diversantur.

Observatio xxv of the tenth book De Cerebri Morbis has for rubric De lycanthropia seu lupina insania.
It is of especial interest as he gives a case which came under his own notice at Alkmaer. A peasant was noticed in the spring-time to be roving about the streets of the town in a peculiar and indecisive manner. His looks were fierce and frantic. After prowling up and down in the cemetery he entered a church, where van Foreest carefully watched his antics ut ipsi spectavimus. He leaped to and fro over the benches, danced wildly, rushed to and fro in the nave and aisles, and could not remain still for a moment.
In one hand he held a great club, which he used to keep off any dog he might see in his path, although he neither approached nor attacked individuals. It was remarked that his bare legs, unwashen and filthy, were scarred with the bites of dogs and old ulcerated sores. His body was gaunt, his limbs squalid and foul with neglect, his face ghastly pale, the eyes deep-sunken, dry, and blazing. He avoided, indeed, as far as possible the gaze of men, and fled away secretly by himself.
In his Scholia van Foreest discusses the disease and its remedies at length, and gives a careful and interesting account of this malady, although perhaps he does not add anything very vital to the observations of his predecessors. He remarks, indeed, that sufferers often imagine themselves to have assumed other animal forms besides that of a wolf. Altomari draws chiefly from Aetius and Paulus Aigineta, to whom he refers the student.
He agrees that the disease is at its worst in February and mentions two patients whom he has treated successfully. One of these he encountered on a certain day in the streets. The lycanthropist, who was raving, had been violating a graveyard and was clutching members he had tom from a corpse. Sunt autem eorum notae: facies pallida, oculi sicci et caui, uisus hebes, lingua siccissima, saliua in ore nulla, sitis immodica, tibiae perpetuo exulceratae propter frequentes casus.
Nonnulli etiam ut canes mordent, ex quo arbitror, morbum ipsum KvvavSpcomav uoeatum fuisse ueteribus. Luke the physician. Stridunt dentibus, spumant, ac signa alia ostendunt tanquam Canes rabidi. Water was appointed as a test in cases of sorcery as early as the laws of Hammurabi, King of Babylon, in the third millennium b. The Fourth Lateran Council, however, in , under Innocent III, by its nineteenth canon forbade priests to pronounce any benedictions at the ordeals of hot or cold water and of the hot iron. There had been grave abuses, whilst in any case the experiment was not wholly trustworthy.
Particularly in England and in Germany did the populace favour the practice. This allegation serues to no purpose: for all water is not the water of Baptisme, but that onely which is vsed in the very act of Baptisme, and not before nor after. The element out of the vse of the Sacrament, is no Sacrament, but retumes again to his common vse. A particularly notorious case occurred in , at Castle Headingham in Essex, and the Daily Telegraph, 23rd June, 1 , reports that at Dunmow Petty Sessions, Charles and Peter Brewster, father and son, were bound over to keep the peace for six months on a charge of molesting Susan Sharpe, the wife of an army pensioner, living at High Easter.
The two Brewsters wanted to put her to the test by throwing her in a pond to see if she would sink or swim. The young defendant declared that he and his wife were bewitched. The furniture in their house was disturbed and moved uneasily; their domestic animals died in extraordinary ways; shadows appeared in their bedroom, some of which bore an uncanny resemblance to Mrs. I have no doubt at all that here was a clear case of witchcraft, and that Mrs. That theologians and physicians looked askance at such rough and ready methods the vulgar little recked. Jan van Hewin categorically denied that this fleeting on the water was any proof of witchcraft.
At id ipsum quoque nunc de medio sublatum, et a Judicibus hujusmodi experimenta proscripta fuerunt. We are free, perhaps, to consider it a test, although by no means a satisfactory test, a mere experiment, and historically it is an essay which has led to scenes of mob violence that are greatly to be deplored, on which account, chiefly, the Holy Father suppresses and forbids any such trial. For from the Malleus Maleficarum, part iii, question 15, we learn that a witch is unable to weep, and why.
The point is a nice one, but whatever authority we follow it is significant that Joannes Arculanus particularly draws attention to the fact that the eyes of the lycanthrope are hot and dry, and that he cannot shed a tear. According to Sennert the appearance of the sufferer is that of the lycanthropist. Homines obvios fugiunt. Quelques lycanthropes ont ete surpris en pleine campagne marchant sur leurs mains et sur leurs genoux, imitant la voix des loups, tout souilles de boue, de sueur, haletans, emportant des debris de cadavres. Morel, who described the case in Etudes Cliniques , This unfortunate individual was entirely convinced that he had assumed the form of a wolf.
I have cloven feet; see the long hairs which cover my body; let me run into the woods, and you shall shoot me! This lycanthrope endured the most fearful mental agony, accusing himself of and tortured by the guilt of heinous offences which he certainly had not committed. He died at the asylum of Mareville in a state of marasmus, seemingly in the uttermost spiritual dereliction.
But this, we may hope, was the climax of his trial, for there appears little doubt from reading the details of the case that here we have a plain case of diabolical possession. It is unfortunate, indeed, that a skilled exorcist was not summoned to deal with the patient. There can be few histories more melancholy, more terribly sad. Bodleian; Digby MS. Warwolf, Werwouf.
