Article Needs More Input from Last Citation, Hults[edit]

Want to point out that the last citation here, Linda C. Hults, from 1987, is much better informed than is currently reflected in this article and much of her analysis seems anti-thetical to the view expressed herein. Baldung was born around the time of the printing of Malleus Maleficarum and it was printed 13x before the Reformation brought a pause, then it was printed 16x during the Counter Reformation. Hults places Baldung into proper context, and analyzes his work with great intelligence. Whether wittingly or not, this article seems to be influenced by the 20th c. apologism, a symptom of which seems to be an odd tendency to refer to witchphobic jurists who as "humanists" while those who argued for innocence and humane treatment of the accused, like Johannes Weyer and Reginald Scot, are referred to as "demonologists." Editorial bias will always be present, but it would be nice to at least see better concrete information and historical context provided before pushing an interpretation.

A cut and paste from Encyclopedia Britannica 1911? --Wetman 08:01, 11 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Do you have a link? Anyway, if it is, we do have a template for this: {{1911}}. Rl 09:33, 11 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Part of it appears in this blog post: and is referenced as being from the 1911 Britannica, so I'm adding the template. -- (talk) 16:31, 1 July 2009 (UTC)


Included link. More details there, where the treatment is hilariously biased and insulting towards the artist. Could be worked into the article with rephrasing or couching ("British criticism held that..."). — LlywelynII 12:34, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
