Viviane Janouin-Benanti

The Judge of God

Version française

Nicolas Rémy, his witches and sorcerers

In the 16th century, the plague wreaked havoc in France.

Throughout the country, accusations of witchcraft led to immediate arrest and often to the death penalty.

Men, women and children perished in the flames of the pyres.

In Lorraine, a province in the east of France, Nicolas Rémy was the worst judge. He boasted of having killed thousands of witches and sorcerers.

This book is the story of those martyrs.

A thousand lives of flesh and blood vibrate in this 21st book by the novelist Viviane Janouin-Benanti. Unforgettable.
