    One thought on “La Sorcière”

    1. A fascinating book from a historical standpoint. Jules Michelet was a renowned French historian and radical, and his politics is evident in the book. He sees Medieval witchcraft as a act of rebellion against the oppressive Catholic church. It is effectively two books, the first is speculative, and the narrative is quite interesting. The second part is more of a dry history of the trials and persecutions. Largely regarded as inaccurate today, it is still an important work because it was one of th [...]

    2. A fabulous, albeit most likely wholly innacurate rendition of the medieval witch craze. I enjoyed this greatly mainly due to Michelet's truly incandescent narrative flair. The French writers I have read seem to have truly unique and inflammatory voices, often radical and often saturated with a festering nihilism - an abhorence of humanity in all it's grossness and grotesqueness.This would be enjoyed by anyone who enjoyed Lautreamont or Huysmans, as it surges with a very similar repugnance for hu [...]

    3. Nullement échaudé par la violente campagne cléricale menée contre lui après la publication du livre Le Prêtre, l'historien Jules Michelet aura une nouvelle fois l'occasion d'étaler au grand jour son aversion envers le catholicisme dans La Sorcière, un essai que l'on pourrait qualifier de proto-féministe derrière lequel d'aucuns crurent distinguer l'ombre d'Athénaïs, son épouse de vingt-huit ans sa cadette. Or, non content de rendre hommage à la femme (la "fiancée du Diable", pour [...]

    4. I doubt this is the same translation I have, which goes way back, but the book itself is nothing like most history you will read from any period. A 19th century French look at the medieval witchcrraft phenomenon, it takes the side of the woman without apology or reserve. It also ignores fact much of the time for an open-handed interpretative and semi-fictionalized way of introducing place and mood.Is this good history? Hard to tell, really. Mostly, it's a highly personal take on a complex subjec [...]

    5. Pour l'historienne que je suis, l'oeuvre de Jules Michelet est plus à prendre finalement comme une analyse de la vision romantique de la sorcière au XIXeme que comme un véritable travail de recherche historique. Une vision de la sorcellerie fantasmée, fausse, complètement revisitée par de plus récents travaux.

    6. Magnifique livre qui retrace l'histoire de la sorcière et donc celle de la science, de la première à l'avoir tentée. C'est un livre superbe et brillamment écrit.

    7. Fantástico ainda que já tenha lido que algumas considerações de Michelet tenham sido revisitadas nas décadas que o seguiram, esse livro não deixa de ser fascinante.O principal atrativo é a escrito envolvente do autor. Desde as primeiras páginas até os relatos da parte final, você se esquece que está lendo um livro de História e se deixa levar como numa ficção. Há muito o que aprender, bem como com o que se divertir.Destilando muito veneno pelo período que ele mais amava odiar, Mi [...]

    8. Ótimo livro, embora por vezes instransponível na leitura em razão dos sentimentos de repulsa pelo que o ser humano faz aos demais. E não digo repulsa à feiticeira, simbolo da mulher, da natureza, dos excluídos, de tudo que a cristandade hipócrita procurou varrer da humanidade. A repulsa é exatamente pelo que a igreja e as supertições daí nascidas fizeram de mau. Superada essa repulsa, a leitura é agradável e essencial para se perceber inclusive a atualidade, em que a mulher é ainda [...]

    9. This book is an first edition english translation from 1939. The original title from the French was La Sorciere. I read another edition and haven't compared the translations but I do know that there was a previous translation from 1863 which may have been the translation I read. Now with this out of the way on with the review.An interesting look at the development of the witch and the resulting witch trials which ravaged Europe for centuries. The book is written in a semi fictional and toward th [...]

    10. It’s easy to think you’ve found a riveting, interesting book based on nothing more than the title. Every now and then, the promise holds true, and you find a gem between the pages. Jules Michelet’s 1862 book, Satanism and Witchcraft: A Study in Medieval Superstition isn’t one of them. As a long-time fan of dark, occult subjects, I wanted to read Michelet’s famed work since I stumbled across the title. As it’s not the type of thing you’ll find in your local library, I bought it used [...]

    11. Ce n'est PAS un livre moderne, historique, factuel, sur la sorcellerie et la place de la femme au moyen-âge mais plutôt un long fantasme de la part d'un idéaliste du XIXème sur le sujet. On y apprend finalement peu et le style ne plaira pas à tous.

    12. Exceptional writing style. Hilarious and exasperating in the way it denigrates its subject."Leprosy has been traced to Asia and the Crusades; but Europe had it in herself. The war declared by the Middle Ages against the flesh and all cleanliness bore its fruits. More than one saint boasted of having never washed even his hands. And how much did the rest wash? To have stripped for a moment would have been sinful. The worldlings carefully follow the teaching of the monks. This subtle and refined s [...]

    13. Para ser un libro escrito en (late) 1800, es lúcido, ligero, incluso actual, ya con la teoría de que la Iglesia condenó a muchísimas mujeres inocentes a la hoguera para probar que tenía un pene eclesiástico del tamaño de la eternidad.Es una cronología desde la instalación de la Iglesia Católica, la invención de Satán detrás de un feminismo ascendente, el peso científico de la medicina contra la superstción una chulada de libro aderezado con fundamentos históricos de mujeres reale [...]

    14. An interesting view on the medieval world, over the course of the most dark period in the history of humanity, full of misery, desease and lies. The people cried out for a little hope, the church ignored them; they had nobody else to turn to except the outcast ladies who where the first true doctors of the middle ages.It reads like a documentary, that will show you a world where knights had not one single drop of chivalry, where donsels need not saving (quite the opposite) and where the common m [...]

    15. An interesting look at the development of the witch and the resulting witch trials which ravaged Europe for centuries. The book is written in a semi fictional and toward the end historical manner. I honestly enjoyed the first part far more than the second, mostly because in the latter half of the book he covers cases that are so widely known that my interest was only cursory in nature. With that said I am glad I have read it for it has been on my shelf for many years and I am positive that in th [...]

    16. This book is weird. It's supposed to be a history book, but it's written in this first-person, "I'm a mystic channeling the past into your face," kind of style. I look at pages in it any time I need random seed values.

    17. I'm used to reading serious scientific essays, which is what I was expecting from this one. However, it reads like a bad novel with facts splashed in.

    18. As the title indicates it is a classic. In depth scholarly study that should be read by anyone interested in both witchcraft and medieval history.
