Peter und der Wolf ist das Musikwerk, dass jedem Kind in der Schule begegnet. Es ist eine spannende Geschichte und Instrumentenkunde zugleich. Den Zuhörern wird aber nicht nur der Charakter der Instrumente nahe gebracht, sondern auch die Kunst des Komponisten Figuren und Handlungen einer Geschichte in Musik umzusetzen. Die vielfach ausgezeichnete Illustratorin Kveta Pacovska gibt der Geschichte von Peter und dem Wolf einen ganz eigenes Gesicht.
German farmer, accused of werewolfery, witchcraft and cannibalism. He was known as ‚the Werewolf of Bedburg‘. The most comprehensive source on the case is a pamphlet of 16 pages published in London in 1590, the translation of a German print of which no copies have survived. Additional information is provided by the diaries of Hermann von Weinsberg, a Cologne alderman, and by a number of illustrated broadsheets, which were printed in southern Germany and were probably based on the German version of the London pamphlet. The original documents seem to have been lost during the wars of the centuries that followed.
Contemporary reference was made to the pamphlet by Edward Fairfax in his firsthand account of alleged witch persecution of his own daughters in 1621. Peter Stumpp’s name is also spelled as Peter Stube, Peter Stub, Peter Stubbe, Peter Stübbe or Peter Stumpf, and other aliases include such names as Abal Griswold, Abil Griswold, and Ubel Griswold. The name „Stump“ or „Stumpf“ may have been given him as a reference to the fact that his left hand had been cut off leaving only a stump, in German „Stumpf“. During 1589, Stumpp had one of the most lurid and famous werewolf trials of history. For twenty-five years, Stumpp had allegedly been an „insatiable bloodsucker“ who gorged on the flesh of goats, lambs, and sheep, as well as men, women, and children. Not only was Stumpp accused of being a serial murderer and cannibal, but also of having an incestuous relationship with his daughter, who was sentenced to die with him, and that he had coupled with a distant relative, which was also considered to be incestuous according to the law.
Composite woodcut print by Lukas Mayer of the execution of Peter Stumpp in 1589 at Bedburg near Cologne. The execution of Stumpp, on October 31, 1589, and of his daughter and mistress, is one of the most brutal on record: he was put to a wheel, where „flesh was torn from his body“, in ten places, with red-hot pincers, followed by his arms and legs. There are a number of details of the text of the London pamphlet that are inconsistent with the historical facts. Electorate of Cologne after the abortive introduction of Protestantism by the former Archbishop Gebhard Truchsess von Waldburg.
Stumpp was most certainly a convert to Protestantism. The war brought the invasion of armies of either side, the assaults by marauding soldiers and eventually an epidemic of the plague. When the Protestants were defeated during 1587, Bedburg Castle became the headquarters of Catholic mercenaries commanded by the new lord of Bedburg—Werner, Count of Salm-Reifferscheidt-Dyck, who was a staunch Catholic determined to re-establish the Roman faith. So it is not inconceivable that the werewolf trial was but a barely concealed political trial, with the help of which the new lord of Bedburg planned to bully the Protestants of the territory back into Catholicism.
If it had only been just another execution of a werewolf and a couple of witches, as occurred about this time in various parts of Germany, the attendance of members of the aristocracy—perhaps including the new Archbishop and Elector of Cologne—would be surprising. However, this does not mean that the charges were without basis in fact. The execution of a mere Protestant convert would have been deeply unlikely to have drawn the aristocratic attention Stumpp’s trial did, and while it was unlikely for the elite to attend to any given werewolf or witch trial, the sheer scale of Stumpp’s alleged crimes would have made it more visible to the public at large and the nobility. In the Pine Deep Trilogy of novelist and folklorist Jonathan Maberry, Peter Stumpp is the supernatural villain Ubel Griswold. In the Jim Butcher book Fool Moon there are several characters that use enchanted wolf pelt belts to transform into a wolf form, similar to the belt Peter Stump claimed to have. A reference to Peter Stumpp is also in William Peter Blatty’s book, The Exorcist.
When Father Karras and Kinderman talk about Satanism they say „Terrible, was this theory, Father, or fact? Well, there’s William Stumpf, for example. Anyway, a German in the sixteenth century who thought he was a werewolf“. Lukas Mayer’s woodcut of the execution of Stumpp in 1589, though in the movie no mention of Stumpp is made. In the Doctor Who audio drama Loups-Garoux, Pieter Stubbe was in fact a werewolf. He managed to escape before he was executed and lived for another five centuries. He was defeated by the Fifth Doctor in Brazil in 2080.
Reich partially based her short story „The Werewolves of Anspach,“ which was nominated for multiple awards, on the life of Peter Stumpp. The story of Peter Stumpp was also told in episode 3 of the podcast Lore, released on April 6, 2015. In 2017, the podcast episode was adapted into the fifth episode of the TV series adaptation of Lore, where he was played by Adam Goldberg. Peter Stump is referenced in ‚The Werewolf of Bamburg‘ by Oliver Potzsch. It briefly mentions his execution and crimes.
