ABSTRACT
Markus Schmids bachelor thesis Eine kritische Stimme zur Hexenverfolgung: Johannes Matthäus Meyfarts Christliche Erinnerung von 1635 (A critical view on the persecution of witches: Johannes Matthäus Meyfarts Christian Commemoration of 1635) takes us back to early modern Europe and the age of witchtrials. With Johannes Matthäus Meyfarts Christliche Erinnerung Schmid presents a view opposed to the persecution of men and women, who have been accused of witchcraft. Schmid succeeds in demonstrating how Meyfarts personal experience led him to a different approach of criticizing this persecution: The criticism of the authorities and the methods used to prosecute those accused of witchcraft. Schmids conclusion reflects the importance of Meyfarts Christliche Erinnerung for the reappraisal of these dark times.
