The Witches' Hammer is a unique read. It tells the story of Adolfina, a young peasant girl who lived in the rural area of Pamplona, capital of the Kingdom of Navarra, who had her life violently interrupted after the opening of an Inquisitorial Court in the city in 1489. A mystery is installed in the Monastery of San Benedito as some friars are stricken with a strange sleep whenever Monsignor Estupinácio, chief inquisitor of Pamplona, pronounces a verdict condemning a witch. Was the city under the influence of a curse? Does the hammer have any supernatural power? This arduous task will be unveiled by Friar Albinair and Friar Honório, curators of the monastery, who will try to free the city from evil powers that threaten to take over the entire kingdom of Navarra.
The Witches' Hammer, (a work based on the book Malleus Maleficarum, one of the most famous books on witchcraft of all time) will take you to know a little about the history of the Catholic Inquisition in Europe, showing the powers and practices of witches and their relationship with the profane. The holy bonfire, the mental and physical torture, as they were hunted, judged and condemned and behind the bloodthirsty acts. These cold and calculating men who, motivated by desires for revenge, were capable of even more heretical acts than those that they had judged.
