The history of witchcraft and sorcery has attracted a great deal of interest and debate, but until now studies have been largely from the Anglo-Saxon perspective. This book shows how what has hitherto been seen as peculiar to Britain was in fact characteristic of much of northern Europe. In ending the Anglo-Saxon monopoly of witchcraft studies, this book takes into account major new developments in the historiography of witchcraft.

An immense amount of archival work by all the contributors has furnished a volume rich in new material and ideas, which will be of considerable interest not only to historians, but also to anthropologists, criminologists, psychologists, and sociologists. Themes treated include the relationship between witchcraft, law, and theology; the origins and nature of the witches' sabbath; the sociology and criminology of witch-hunting; and the comparative approach to European witchcraft. This book will be an indispensable guide to the study of witchcraft.

Review:

possesses the virtue of presenting a wealth of material in terms of a coherent analytical framework. (Times Higher Education Supplement)

makes a superb contribution to historical scholarship. (Times Literary Supplement)

Retains a freshness of approach largely because it contains so many interesting studies ... All the essays have something valuable to contribute to our understanding. (History Today)
