This introductory chapter begins with a discussion about the large amount historical literature on witchcraft. It describes the work of archivist Étienne Delcambre, Le concept de la sorcellerie dans le duché de Lorraine au XVIe et au XVIIe siècle, published between 1948 and 1951 in three volumes, and that of a shorter book by Jean-Claude Diedler, Démons et Sorcières en Lorraine. Le bien et le mal dans les communautés rurales de 1550 à 1660. The chapter then describes the approaches used in writing this book.
