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 arrests and often ended with the death penalty.

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

In Lorraine, a province in the eastern France, Nicolas Rémy was one of the worst judges for those accused of witchcraft. He boasted about having killed thousands of witches and sorcerers.

This book is the story of those he condemned to death.

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