This chapter discusses the judicial process in Lorraine. Topics covered include legal procedures and structures, statistics on the pattern of persecution, and torture and its effects. The lack of serious debate or differences of opinions concerning witchcraft persecution is considered. It is also argued that Lorraine legal practice in witchcraft cases is better seen as a process carried out under a set of overlapping authorities.
