Fab­ri­zio Con­ti, Witchc­raft, Su­per­s­tit­ion, and Ob­ser­vant Fran­cis­can Pre­a­chers: Pas­tor­al App­ro­ach and In­tel­lec­tu­al De­ba­te in Re­na­is­sance Mi­lan, Turn­ho­ut, Bre­pols, 2015.

The new vo­lu­me of the Eu­ro­pa Sac­ra se­ri­es, pub­lis­hed in 2015, con­cent­ra­tes on late-medieval Italy, spe­ci­fi­cally Mi­lan. The name of the aut­hor is well-known to tho­se fa­mi­li­ar with the con­nec­tions bet­ween the Ob­ser­vant Fran­cis­cans and witchc­raft. Ha­v­ing pub­lis­hed and pre­sen­ted papers for se­ve­ral ye­ars, this vo­lu­me by Fab­ri­zio Con­ti is a wel­co­me re­vi­si­on of his PhD dis­ser­ta­ti­on that was de­fen­ded at Cent­ral Euro­pe­an Uni­ver­sity, Bu­da­pest in 2011.
