    1. I checked this book out over and over and over My mom had a talk with the librarians I was forbidden to check out the book again until I d read ten books NOT about werewolves, vampires, etc I zipped through the Frog and Toad books and a few tasteful selections from the Amelia Bedelia series to quicken the deal.


    2. This seems to be the only entry for Henri Boguet, French judge and author of witch hunting manuals If we but look among our own neighbors we shall find them all infested with this miserable and damnable vermin There are witches by the thousand everywhere, multiplying upon the earth even as worms in a garden.


    3. Really interesting collection of historical documents about werewolves It includes medical cases, trial readings, theological essays and allegorical stories It s gives a great view into the historical understanding of werewolves It s a mixture of scientific, theological and fictional work If you re interested in werewolves I definitely recommend it.


    4. With very little, if any original writing, this anthology reads like a hardbound coursepack than a study This may have had some value in 1986, but the same work could be accomplished now with a decent website, which, over, could ask advanced students to provide their own translation of the Walter Scott meets Malory meets Joseph Smith archaized translation of the Latin Arthur and Gorlagon If ever a translation needed to be updated, this is it.


    5. So good, I m reading it again Bought it for research, only to find some great stories and amazing facts behind the superstitions.


    6. a must if you are reading up on historical werewolf information only negative is that it focuses on western europe and misses some awesome eastern european lore


    7. It s a nonfiction book, so unless your interested in the subject like I am, don t read it But for informational value, it s priceless.


    8. Excellent sourcebook for all things related to lycanthropy An exhilarating read Definitely for werewolf and horror aficionados, but maybe not for the layman.
