Harrington's fluid, inventive translation and his superb introduction take the English reader as close as possible to the original text. This book will be an excellent companion piece to his biography of Schmidt, The Faithful Executioner, which has been widely read and admired. (Joy Wiltenburg, Rowan University, author of Crime and Culture in Early Modern Germany)A fascinating, more or less unique document, the journal of a working executioner. Schmidt’s dramatic narrative and grim humor make for compelling reading. Harrington’s translation is based on the earliest known copy of Schmidt’s diary, and he argues convincingly that it is the closest to Schmidt’s original text.

Harrington is Centennial Professor of History at Vanderbilt University and the author of The Faithful Executioner: Life and Death, Honor and Shame in the Turbulent Sixteenth Century and The Unwanted Child: The Fate of Foundlings, Orphans, and Juvenile Criminals in Early Modern Germany.
