Title : Immagini di streghe nei manoscritti medievali [increased belief in witches in the late Middle Ages also involved more frequent illustration of them and their revels; lascivious human figures were combined with animal or demonic figures, often in orgiastic scenes; like Venus, lascivious witches were symbols of lust, in contrast to sacred love; satanic love magic was one of the crimes attributed to witches].
