Christianity affirmed the spiritual equality of men and women, but St. Paul and many of the most influential Church Fathers blurred that doctrine. Women became the temptresses of men, men who moved the wheels of state, of religion, and of learning, men whose souls were practically, if not theoretically, more important. In most Christian theology and tradition this misogyny was kept within bounds, but sometimes it burst out crudely. Heinrich Institoris, the author of the Malleus maleficarum, spoke from this position when he explained the predominance of women in witchcraft:
What else is woman but a foe to friendship, an inescapable punishment, a necessary evil, a natural temptation, a desirable calamity, a domestic danger, a delectable detriment, an evil of nature, painted in fair colours…. The word woman is used to mean the lust of the flesh, as it is said: I have found a woman more bitter than death, and a good woman more subject to carnal lust…[Women] are more credulous; and since the chief aim of the devil is to corrupt faith, therefore he rather attacks them [than men]… Women are naturally more impressionable… They have slippery tongues, and are unable to conceal from their fellow women those things which by evil arts they know… Women are intellectually like children…She is more carnal than a man, as is clear from her many carnal abominations… She is an imperfect animal, she always deceives… Therefore a wicked woman is by her nature quicker to waver in her faith, and consequently quicker to abjure the faith, which is the root of witchcraft..Just as through the first defect in their intelligence they are more prone to abjure the faith; so through their second defect of inordinate affections and passions they search for, brood over, and inflict various vengeances, either by witchcraft, or by some other means… Women also have weak memories; and it is a natural vice in them not to be disciplined, but to follow their own impulses without any sense of what is due… She is a liar by nature… Let us also consider her gait, posture, and habit, in which is vanity of vanities.
Some wicked women are perverted by the Devil and led astray by illusions and fantasies induced by demons, so that they believe that they ride out at night on beasts with Diana, the pagan goddess, and a horde of women. They believe that in the silence of the night they cross huge distances. They say that they obey Diana’s commands and on certain nights are called out in her service… Many other people also believe this to be true, although it is a pagan error to believe that any other divinity exists than the one God… Such fantasies are thrust into the minds of faithless people, not by God, but by the Devil. For Satan has the power to transform himself into the figure of an angel of light. In this form he captures and enslaves the mind of a miserable woman and transforms himself into the shapes of various different people. He shows her deluded mind strange things and unknown people, and leads it on the weird journeys. It is only the mind that does this, but faithless people believe that these things happen to the body as well. 
Europe , for a period of 2 centuries and a half, brooded upon the idea, not only that parted spirits walked the earth to meddle in the affairs of men, but that they had power to summon evil spirits to their aid to work woe upon their fellows. An epidemic terror seized upon the nations; no man thought himself secure, either in his person or possessions, from the machinations of the devil and his agents. Every calamity that befell him he attributed to a witch. If a storm arose and blew down his barn, it was witchcraft; if his cattle died of a murrain-if disease fastened upon his limbs, or death entered suddenly and snatched a beloved face from his hearth – they were not visitations of Providence, but the works of some neighbouring hag, whose wretchedness or insanity caused the ignorant to raise their finger and point at her as a witch. The word was upon everybody’s tongue. France, Italy, Germany, England, Scotland, and the far northcrimes were seldom or never spoken of. Thousands upon thousands of unhappy persons fell victims to this cruel and absurd delusion. In many cities of Germany, as will be shown more fully in its due place hereafter, the average number of executions for this pretended crime was 600 annually, or 2 every day, if we leave out the Sundays, when it is to be supposed that even this madness refrained from its work.
