This story is inspired by witch-hunt which happened in Europe in XVI and XVII century.
The book Malleus Malleficarum was written by two Dominicans theologs, Heinrich Kramer and Jacobus Sprenger in 1468, and officially approved by Papa Inocencio VIII.
During the next three century this text was main guidebook for the Inquisition in the war against the witchcraft in Europe.
It has been said that the Malleus Maleficarum is one of the most blood-soaked works in human history and led to the prosecution, torture and murder, of tens of thousands of innocent people.
Today we know that those women frequently were extraordinary persons with ideas and knowledge far beyond their time.

I have been always fascinated with this theme, and in this work i tried to imagine theirs aspect intending to contrast the femininity, delicacy and almost innocence with their´s generally accepted terrific aspect.
