In a time, ours, in which historiography prefers to measure itself with witchcraft as a judicial phenomenon, or with the men who personally led the persecution, or even with the demonological treatises that greatly influenced witch hunters, this book focuses instead on the victims. Women accused of witchcraft are the protagonists of the trials initiated between the late Middle Ages and the early modern age: that was the time when the great witch hunt was unleashed in Europe. The profiles of the alleged witches, even if drawn by their judges, emerge from these pages in all their changeability and drama: women that are reluctant to plead guilty to unspoken crimes, marked by stubborn silence, surrendered to the full confession of every wickedness extorted by torture.

In un tempo, il nostro, in cui la storiografia preferisce misurarsi con la stregoneria come fenomeno giudiziario, o con gli uomini che condussero in prima persona la persecuzione, o con i trattati demonologici che molto influenzarono i cacciatori di streghe, questo libro mette al centro i soggetti che ne furono vittime. Le donne accusate di stregoneria sono le protagoniste dei processi istruiti fra tardo Medioevo e prima età moderna: fu quello il tempo in cui si scatenò in Europa la grande caccia alle streghe. I profili delle presunte streghe, pur disegnati dai loro giudici, emergono da queste pagine in tutta la loro mutevolezza e drammaticità: donne reticenti a dichiararsi colpevoli di crimini non commessi, segnate dal silenzio ostinato, arrese alla piena confessione di ogni nefandezza estorta con la tortura.
