1659. Carta de Francisco Díaz Méndez para Ana López (La Larga), hilandera.

Autor(es) Francisco Díaz Méndez      
Destinatário(s) Ana López      
In English

Letter from Francisco Díaz Méndez to Ana López (La Larga), a spinner.

The author writes Ana López to tell her that Diego is getting better and to inform her about a trip to Madrid he intends to do.

Ana López, nicknamed La Larga, was a stockinger and spinner from Daimiel. In 1663, she was accused of being a healer and of doing spells. In particular, she was accused of doing love spells, spells to find animals who have been lost, and to heal people. This letters were seized from the accused when she was arrested, and in them many spells made by Ana López are mentioned, many of which had not had any effect or had been problematic. The letters were used as a proof to accuse her. During the interrogation, she declared that she was illiterate and she could only prepare certain medicines to heal certain sicknesses, and that what she did was not sorcery or witchcraft. Eventually, she was sentenced to six years of banishment and reprehended. Moreover, all her properties were seized.
