Les sentences dans les procès de sorcellerie et superstitions du district inquisitorial de Saragosse (XVe-XIXe siècles)

Abstract : After having briefly contextualized sentences within inquisitorial procedures, we will move on to the penalties imposed on witches and superstitious people in Saragossa. Two periods stand out: one during which the trials—still rare—are characterized by their extreme rigor, the other during which the trials multiply but result in lighter sentences. What function do the sentences fulfil? At first, the will to guarantee the respect for the dogma through spiritual punishments—but this pastoral mission does not seem to be the main concern of the inquisitors any more. Although this goal of redemption does not de facto disappear, more and more the sentences have a social dimension. Above all, they represent a power issue at a time when the institution is endangered.
