Event Originally produced by Lara Classics in 1986.
Summary Set in an isolated medieval village in France, SORCERESS is the story of Etienne de Bourbon, a thirteenth-century friar who is sent by the Pope to seek out heresy. Etienne discovers that, when their children are sick, the village women go to a forest woman, Elda, to help them heal their babies. Elda is schooled in the ancient arts of healing, the use of leaves, seeds, and bark, and, if need be, she leads the mothers and their children to a grove where a special ritual is performed. When Etienne surreptitiously witnesses the grove rite he is horrified and begins an investigation into what he sees as heretical acts. In the course of the inquiry, and the events that ensue, Etienne learns something about his own past that completely humbles him. Nominated for Best First Work at the **César Awards**.
