Echoing my previous review of The Werewolf in Lore & Legend I can only reiterate my fondness for Summers' works This is a book of serious dedicated scholarship and is intended for a readership with at least a cursory grasp of Latin Greek and other romance languages However with so many online translators as cheap dictionaries widely available these days the use of primary sources should be no barrier to the earnest readerAnyone who professes to practice magic witchcraft or dabble in the occult and therefore has a sympathetic disposition towards it will certainly not enjoy this book Summers as a Catholic priest is scathing of the men & woman he writes about as having encouraged the rank weeds of heresy and satanism which is exactly what he saw witchcraft and sorcery as Oddly all of Summers works sit much happily on the shelves of traditionally minded Catholics or High Church Anglicans than self professed witches and magicians His arguments that all sorcery is a vile sin and a moral evil enliven the wonderfully archaic style of writing Summers' employs As to what Summers himself thinks should be done with those who claim to be witches or practice sorcery he leaves us with the deliciously chilling Biblical uotation from Exodus 2218 thou shalt not suffer a witch to liveThe level of research and scholarship is commendable Summers employs works and manuscripts rarely if ever in public print and mostly now to be found in obscure university library storage roomsIn short not a book for those who wish to learn about practising witchcraft performing occult rituals or casting spells Summers almost never in any of his occult works gives the rubrics of the rites he discusses As a history of witchcraft from standpoint of the EnglishEuropean Christian tradition is it first rate and there is really no other book uite like it For anyone interested in the history of witchcraft from the conservative Christian end of the spectrum I would also heartily recommend Summer's History of Witchcraft and Demonology

Written a century ago the work has aged in a mixed manner The academic study of witchcraft and black magic is fairly well researched and historic accounts are well referenced Summers own bias as indicative of the period in which he wrote colours his work heavily and such blemishes the work somewhat If you can mentally edit the racism and notions of 'Satanists are out to rule the world' panic that would be suited to the 17th century then Summers work has some very useful elements of research
