"The roots of European witchcraft and magic lie in Hebrew and other ancient Near Eastern cultures and in the Celtic, Nordic, and Germanic traditions of the continent. For two millennia, European folklore and ritual have been imbued with the belief in the supernatural, yielding a rich trove of histories and images." "Witchcraft and Magic in Europe combines traditional approaches of political, legal, and social historians with a critical synthesis of cultural anthropology, historical psychology, and gender studies."--Jacket
The period of the witch trials by Bengt Ankarloo( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fifteenth to eighteenth centuries was a period of witchcraft prosecutions throughout Europe and modern scholars have now devoted a huge amount of research to these episodes. This volume will attempt to bring this work together by summarising the history of the trials in a new way - according to the types of legal systems involved. Other topics covered will be the continued practical use made of magic, the elaboration of demonological theories about witchcraft and magic, and the further development of scientific interests in natural magic through the ''Neoplatonic'' and ''Hermetic'' period

Satans raseri : en sannfärdig berättelse om det stora häxoväsendet i Sverige och omgivande länder by Bengt Ankarloo( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in Swedish and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bengt Ankarloo är en av världens främsta häxforskare och ger nu ut en bred översikt över häxprocesserna i Europa, med tyngdpunkt på Sverige. Han spårar tron på häxor och onda demoner tillbaka till antiken och den kristna medeltiden fram till det stora utbrottet av förföljelser i Europa under 1500- och 1600-talen. Han diskuterar också maktkampen mellan lokalsamhället, kyrkan och de framväxande nationalstaterna beträffande skuldfrågan från vem hade egentligen en utsatt kvinna mest att frukta? Och hur blodtörstig var egentligen Inkvisitionen? De groteskt överdrivna uppgifter som florerat om antalet offer för häxprocesserna sätts under lupp i Sverige avrättades 240 personer under den period på sju år då förföljelserna kulminerade. Var förföljelserna en sorglig kvarleva av äldre tiders allmänna grymhet, okunnighet och vantro eller en bland många yttringar av manssamhällets kvinnoförtryck? Många spektakulära förklaringar har framförts genom åren trots den blygsamma tillgången på källor. Bengt Ankarloo lyfter fram varje tänkbar förklaring av förföljelserna men avfärdar med vetenskaplig stränghet allt som luktar opportunistiskt och lättköpt. [Publit]
