Trithemius Bovelles Notes

Notes on Bovelles on Trithemius

Johannes Weyer, De Praestigiis Daemonum … Libri 6, Basle 1577, book II chapter VI, p. 166 – 169.

This is our oldest source for the Bovelles letter, but Weyer (also Wier, Wierus: born Brabant, 1515, died Tecklenburg, 1588), writing in 1562, can have had no first hand knowledge of the matter and is evidently repeating what had become received opinion.
