De Gert, Berthomine (ca. 1608)
A sorceress of the town of Préchac in Gascony who confessed
about the year 1608 that when a sorceress returning from the
sabbat is killed, the devil takes her shape and makes her reappear
and die in her own dwelling so as to preserve her good
reputation. But if the murderer has a wax candle and with it
makes the sign of the cross on the witch’s body, the devil cannot
with all his strength remove her and is forced to leave her
