The Witches' Sabbath was said to be the meeting of sinister forces for devil worship through dancing, feasting, or sacrifices. In depicting this orgy of bodies and monsters, artists often borrowed from religious imagery. Numerous Renaissance images provided Jacques Callot with a litany of fantastic creatures for his widely influential Temptation of Saint Anthony, depicting the steadfast saint as he endures the mental and spiritual tortures of hell.
