Male Witches in Early Modern Europe Paperback / softback
by Lara Apps, Andrew Gow
This is the first ever full book on the subject of male witches addressing incidents of witch-hunting in both Britain and Europe. Uses feminist categories of gender analysis to critique the feminist agenda that mars many studies.
Advances a more bal. Critiques historians' assumptions about witch-hunting, challenging the marginalisation of male witches by feminist and other historians.
Shows that large numbers of men were accused of witchcraft in their own right, in some regions, more men were accused than women.
It uses feminist categories of gender analysis to challenge recent arguments and current orthodoxies providing a more balanced and complex view of witch-hunting and ideas about witches in their gendered forms than has hitherto been available. -- .
