HISTORY:WITCHCRAFT TRIALS IN HISTORY

For this Written Assignment, you will need to answer the following question about the witchcraft trials in your paper. Your response needs to be based on the corresponding documents that I have provided below. Failure to rely heavily on these documents will result in a significant deduction in your grade, as the purpose of this assignment is to gain the firsthand perspective from people who experienced these events personally. Witchcraft trials have taken place throughout medieval history, in almost every continent, but particularly in Europe and North America. Pope Innocent VIII supported and encouraged seeking out witches and putting them on trial for their alleged heretical beliefs and behaviors. Many others wrote speeches and guides explaining how to catch, prosecute and punish witches (the most famous example being the Malleus Maleficarum). Based on the ideas presented by Innocent VIII, Johannes Nider and in the excerpt from the Malleus Maleficarum, was it possible for anyone accused of being a witch to receive a “fair” trial? Why or why not? (Be sure to base your opinions firmly on the information provided in the required documents. You need to address each of the witchcraft excerpts in your paper.) p Your paper must be at least three full pages long (excluding your title page, notes and bibliography). Historians in both academic and professional settings use Chicago style citations in their work, which requires footnotes or endnotes and a bibliography. You are not, however, required to use this format. If you are more comfortable with MLA or APA citations, I recommend that you use them. If you need help with any of the citation styles, there are guides within the APUS Online Library. I also encourage you to ask me any questions you might have. Whatever format you choose, your citations must be correctly done in order to receive full credit. Please be sure to include page numbers, if/when appropriate.
