In 1603, Henri Boguet, High Judge of the district of Saint Claude, said, “It’s incredible to me that there are still people today who do not believe in witches. In my opinion, they know full well that the opposite is true.”

This documentary explores witchcraft through prints and drawings by Brueghel the Elder, Cranach, Baldung Grien, Tempesta, Füssli and more, with accompanying text of the Inquisitor played by Lonsdale.
