The Discovery of Witches

In 1645 Matthew Hopkins began his career as Witchfinder General. He travelled the country searching for witches and wizards, those he found, he had put to death.

Questions were raised by judges and priests when he they saw him convicting hundreds of men and women. Some even feared that that he might even be accusing these people just to earn money!

To answer their questions Matthew wrote and published this explanation of his methods and motivations.

I have created a reading of Matthews short book and put it up on Audible...
