9780719064432: The Malleus Maleficarum

The Malleus Maleficarum is one of the best-known treatises dealing with the problem of what to do with witches. It was written in 1487 by a Dominican inquisitor, Heinrich Institoris, following his failure to prosecute a number of women for witchcraft, it is in many ways a highly personal document, full of frustration at official complacency in the face of a spiritual threat, as well as being a practical guide for law-officers who have to deal with a cunning, dangerous enemy. Combining theological discussion, illustrative anecdotes, and useful advice for those involved in suppressing witchcraft, its influence on witchcraft studies has been extensive. The only previous translation into English, that by Montague Summers produced in 1928, is full of inaccuracies. It is written in a style almost unreadable nowadays, and is unfortunately coloured by his personal agenda. This new edited translation, with an introductory essay setting witchcraft, Institoris, and the Malleus into clear, readable English, corrects Summers' mistakes and offers a lean, unvarnished version of what Institoris actually wrote. It will undoubtedly become the standard translation of this important and controversial late-medieval text.

Descrizione libro Manchester University Press, 2007. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A en croire la quatrime de couverture, cette traduction anglaise de 2007 du Malleus maleficarum serait la premire depuis 1928. Malheureusement, cette affirmation est inexacte, car en 2006, Christopher S. Mackay a publi aux Presses de l''Universit de Cambridge, en deux volumes, l''dition et la traduction intgrales de cette oeuvre, accompagnes d''une introduction de prs de deux cents pages et d''un minutieux appareil de notes. Le propos de cette nouvelle traduction anglaise, la troisime donc, est plus modeste : elle ne donne que des extraits de l''ouvrage (les passages omis tant alors rsums), l''apparat critique est rduit et l''introduction est relativement courte (38 p.)Le choix des extraits est judicieux, donnant un bon aperu des diffrentes questions traites et permettant ainsi de se faire rapidement une ide correcte du trait. Les notes sont pertinentes, indiquant aussi bien les sources (notamment bibliques) que les choix du traducteur (dont certains sont discutables, comme par exemple, dans la deuxime question 15 de la troisime partie, la traduction de ubi sua habent maleficia abscondita par where they usually hide their protective amulets , ce que Mackay rend plus exactement par the situation where they have hidden their devices for sorcery - plus simplement encore, Armand Danet traduisait par l ou elles cachent leurs malfices ). On peut cependant se demander pourquoi P. G. Maxwell-Stuart prend pour texte de rfrence une dition du Malleus maleficarum, celle de Francfort en 1588, postrieure de plus d''un sicle l''dition princeps (Spier, 1486-1487), alors meme qu''il existe des fac-simils de cette dernire.Mais, tant donn que le lecteur francophone dispose dj d''une bonne traduction dans sa langue, celle d''Armand Danet, Le Marteau des sorcires, parue en 1973 chez Plon et depuis lors plusieurs fois rdite (encore en 2005) chez Jrome Millon Grenoble, c''est surtout l''introduction qui retiendra notre attention. Armand Danet introduisait sa traduction par une tude de plus de soixante-dix pages ( L''inquisiteur et ses sorcires ) ; Mackay par une General introduction , une Introduction to the latin text et une Introduction to the translation , lesquelles formaient un ensemble de prs de deux cents pages ; P. G. Maxwell-Stuart, pour sa part, se contente de trente-huit pages, format qui correspond bien celui de l''ensemble du volume (moins de trois cents pages, alors que l''ouvrage de Danet en comptait prs du double, et celui de Mackay plus du quadruple). Cette introduction est divise en cinq parties : les deux premires ( The intellectual ambience of the Malleus et Magic in the fifteenth century ) traitent du contexte culturel dans lequel s''est inscrit le Malleus maleficarum ; la suivante ( Heinrich Institoris and Jakob Sprenger ), des auteurs, prsums ou rels, du Malleus ; la quatrime ( The Malleus Maleficarum ), de l''ouvrage en lui-meme ; la dernire ( The later history of the Malleus ), de la transmission et de la postrit du Malleus.Concernant le milieu intellectuel, P. G. Maxwell-Stuart insiste juste titre sur le sentiment de menace d''hrsie et de division qui rgnait alors dans le christianisme occidental, particulirement chez les clercs. Il souligne ainsi, dans ce contexte, l''importance de caractrisation de la sorcellerie comme hrsie, conception qu''il fait remonter Nider (probablement au Formicarius et au Praeceptorum divinae Legis, l''un et l''autre des annes 1437-1438) ; toutefois, il faut remarquer que cette assimilation de la sorcellerie une hrsie, tributaire de l''mergence dcisive de la notion de factum heriticale, tait dj prsente, quoique conteste, dans la consultation de 1320 super questionibus de baptizacione ymaginibus et aliarum superstitionum (dite par Alain Boureau, Le Pape et les Sorciers, 2004) et dans la bulle de 1326-1327 Super illius specula de Jean XXII (Alain Boureau, Satan hrtique, 2004). Il relve aussi que, pour nombre de ces derniers, Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0719064430
