Witch Hunt: History of a PersecutionWitch Hunt: History of a Persecution by Nigel Cawthorne

There have been numerous attempts to explain the witch-hunting mania that swept the Western world between the fifteenth and eighteenth centuries. Nigel Cawthorne vividly brings the hysteria to life with this powerful examination of actual witchcraft cases, and provides a compelling description of what it was like to live in a society where everyone believed in witches. Using contemporaneous court reports, depositions, letters, confessions and detailed written accounts, the author builds a terrifying picture of a world beset by the collective mania that was the Witch Hunt.
