Early Modern Witches : Witchcraft Cases in Contemporary Writing, Paperback / softback Book

Early Modern Witches : Witchcraft Cases in Contemporary Writing Paperback / softback


This collection of pamphlets describes fifteen English witchcraft cases in detail, vividly recreating events to give the reader the illusion of actually being present at witchcraft accusations, trials and hangings.

But how much are we victims of literary manipulation by these texts?

The pamphlets are presented in annotated format, to allow the reader to decide.

Some of the texts appear in print for the first time in three centuries, whilst others are newly edited to give a clearer picture of sources.
