Sprenger and Kramer illustrate the casting of a glamour with the following story:
A certain young man had had an intrigue with a girl. Wishing to leave her, he lost his member: that is to say, some glamour was cast over it so that he could see or touch nothing but his smooth body. In his worry over this he went to a tavern to drink wine; and after he had sat there for a while he got into conversation with another woman who was there, and told her the cause of his sadness, explaining everything and demonstrating in his body that it was so. The woman was shrewd and asked if he suspected anybody.
The young man named a certain person. The woman advised him to persuade this person to restore to him his integrity, by violence if need be. He took this advice and stopped the woman in question in a lonely place, demanding that she withdraw the spell. When she protested that she was innocent and knew nothing about it, he fell upon her, and, winding a towel tightly round her neck, choked her, saying;
“Unless you give me back my health you shall die at my hands.”
Then she, being unable to cry out, and with her face already swelling and growing black, said:
“Let me go, and I will heal you.”
The young man then relaxed the pressure of the towel, and the witch touched him with her hand between the thighs, saying:
“Now you have what you desire.”
And the young man, as he afterwards said, plainly felt, before he had verified it by looking or touching, that his member had been restored to him.
