He even wrote a book, Daemonology, in 1597. He personally supervised the torture of women who were supposedly Witches. In 1604 he had passed repressive anti-Witchcraft laws. He commissioned a group of scholars to translate the Bible into English. He insisted that “his” Bible must be Protestant and passages must not support the Catholic Church.
