Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is an original and important study of the significance of witchcraft in English public life in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In his lively account, Bostridge explores contemporary beliefs about witchcraft and shows how it remained a serious concern across the spectrum of political opinion. He concludes that its gradual descent into polite ridicule had as much to do with political developments as with the birth of reason.

Synopsis:

This text studies the significance of witchcraft in English public life (1650-1750), and deals with contemporary opinion regarding its theological, philosophical, and legal dimensions. Among the topics covered are civil war politics and the debate about witchcraft during the Glorious Revolution.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [245]-264) and index.
