Abstract

Details of the case of two women thieves. The first case involves Anna Maria Geigenbergerin, a single, Catholic woman in her 40s who became involved with a burglar, Johannes Krug, who was under investigation by the Inquisition. She provided him with useful information that allowed him to burglarize homes and businesses then she received a portion of what was stolen. She admitted she had been involved in such thefts for 5 years. According to Articles 162 and 177 of the criminal code of Emperor Carl V, she was sentenced to beheading with a sword. One of her hands was to be cut off as an example to others. The second case is that of Katharina Steidlerinn, a 39 year-old, married, Catholic woman. She had already been convicted of stealing on two previous occasions. 25 separate incidents of theft are detailed in this pamphlet. She was sentenced under Article 162 of the criminal code to beheading by the sword.
