Ghosts, Witches and Portents in Early Modern Europe: Seminar 18: The Crime of Witchcraft: Radical Doubters

Ghosts, Witches and Portents in Early Modern Europe: Seminar 18: The Crime of Witchcraft: Radical Doubters

Description

We tend to imagine that there was a consensus of beliefs about witchcraft and the powers of the devil, with that unity beginning to break down only towards the end of the seventeenth century under the impact of the scientific movement and the scepticism of the early Enlightenment. This seminar challenges these assumptions by showing that there was no real consensus earlier on. The seminar focuses specifically on Reginald Scot and John Webster. Prepared for the special subject module: Ghosts, Witches and Portents in Early Modern Europe.
