Lescoriere, Marie (fl. sixteenth century)
A witch of the sixteenth century arrested at the age of 90. On
being examined she declared that she was no longer a witch,
that she prayed daily, and that she had not visited the sabbat
for 40 years. Questioned on the subject of the sabbat, she confessed
that she had seen the devil and that he had visited her
in the shape of a dog or a cat. On one occasion, she said, she
had killed a neighbor by praying to the devil.
