Description/notes on Brenda Stumpf's piece titled Handbook:
Watercolor, charcoal and plaster on paper

In the Malleus Maleficarum, which is the Inquisition's handbook, states an accused witch must be "often and frequently exposed to torture. If after being fittingly tortured she refuses to confess the truth, he [the inquisitor] should have other engines of torture brought before her, and tell her that she will have to endure these if she does not confess. If then she is not induced by terror to confess, the torture must be continued."

-- Walker, Barbara G., The Women's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets, HarperCollins, San Francisco, 1983. Page 442.
