"Of all the misfortunes which all the various fanatical and corrupt opinions, through Satan's help, have brought in our time to Christendom, not the smallest is that which, under the name of 'witchcraft,' is sown as a vicious seed. The people may be divided against themselves through their many disputes about the Scriptures and church customs while the old Snake stirs the blast; still no such great misfortunes result from that as from the thereby inspired opinion that childish old hags, whom one calls 'witches' or 'wizards,' can do any harm to men and animals."
