Ghosts, Witches and Portents in Early Modern Europe: Seminar 15: Continental Comparisons: Witchcraft in Lorraine and Bavaria

Ghosts, Witches and Portents in Early Modern Europe: Seminar 15: Continental Comparisons: Witchcraft in Lorraine and Bavaria

Description

There is a strong historiographical tradition, sustained by the insularity of English historians, that English witchcraft and accusation were ‘somehow distinctive from the continental equivalents of these phenomena’. This seminar concentrates on the case of the Duchy of Lorraine to show that the English experience was a variation on themes that were prominent within Europe and not entirely ‘distinctive’ as has been claimed. Prepared for the special subject module: Ghosts, Witches and Portents in Early Modern Europe.
