| This Year In|
- The Third Council of the Council of Nine meets in Horizon.
- According to the Fama, Father Christian dies, unaffected by disease, but summoned instead by the spirit of God.
- Pope Innocent IV releases his Witch-Bull,Summis desiderantes, which condemns witchcraft as a practice but does not classify it as a heresy. In response, Kramer and Sprengel compose the Malleus Maleficarum, a treatise warning of the presence of witches in European society. The Catholic church rejects the Malleus almost immediately, even going so far as to censure Kramer, but it nonetheless becomes a guidebook for secular courts.
