Silvia Federici comments some images of the book «The encyclopedia of witchcraft and demonology» (Robbins, Rossell Hope, 1959). She questions the images and the violence of the demonologists and formulates hypotheses on the emergence of capitalism and on the mechanisms for controlling women's work in both the private and the public sectors.
