This book carefully combines an analysis of folklore, popular tradition, and culture. These men and women who identify themselves as benandanti are born with the caul — that is, a piece of amniotic sac around their necks — and are thereby marked as benandanti from birth. According to them, the purpose of these nighttime adventures were to fight witches who were trying to infect and kill crops; they saw themselves as protectors of the crop. No matter their origins, this is most important: The most fascinating part of the book, which by far takes up most of its content, is what happens when this cult meets the Catholic Church in the form of the Inquisition.

Over a very long period of time, this interaction slowly turns a very Christian cult into a devilish coven of witches convening at a sabbat fighting against God, and therefore against the Church. Members were called before Church trials and demanded to explain their experiences. Because Ginzburg spends most of his time showing this careful transformation, the numerous — perhaps a few dozen — case studies presented are all carefully examined, sometimes dropped, picked up later in the text, and then re-examined; this can make the thread of the argument and its most prominent actors difficult to keep straight.

It is all over the place and not in chronological order.

Apr 11, Dr. A book for Carllo and one that probably needs some context.

Ginzburg returns to the much berated works of Mary Murray and offers a new perspective on the witchhunts. The book lacks a good conclusion and often the author is merely making educated guesses unsupported by the evidence offered.

For the well read on witchcraft this is a must read, but for the novice this book can not stand alone. I had to read this for a class about Witchcraft. However, important bneandanti were made in the book, and I’m glad I read most of it.
