Agents of Witchcraft in Early Modern Italy and Denmark, Hardback Book

Agents of Witchcraft in Early Modern Italy and Denmark Hardback

Part of the Palgrave Historical Studies in Witchcraft and Magic series

Description

This book offers a comparison of lay and inquisitorial witchcraft prosecutions.

In most of the early modern period, witchcraft jurisdiction in Italy rested with the Roman Inquisition, whereas in Denmark only the secular courts raised trials.

Kallestrup explores the narratives of witchcraft as they were laid forward by people involved in the trials.
