Witch Craze: Terror and Fantasy in Baroque Germany - Paperback

ISBN: 9780300119831

[SR: 365056], Paperback, [EAN: 9780300119831], Yale University Press, Yale University Press, Book, [PU: Yale University Press], Yale University Press, From the gruesome ogress in Hansel and Gretel to the hags at the sabbath in Faust, the witch has been a powerful figure of the Western imagination. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries thousands of women confessed to being witches―of making pacts with the Devil, causing babies to sicken, and killing animals and crops―and were put to death. This book is a gripping account of the pursuit, interrogation, torture, and burning of witches during this period and beyond.Drawing on hundreds of original trial transcripts and other rare sources in four areas of Southern Germany, where most of the witches were executed, Lyndal Roper paints a vivid picture of their lives, families, and tribulations. She also explores the psychology of witch-hunting, explaining why it was mostly older women that were the victims of witch crazes, why they confessed to crimes, and how the depiction of witches in art and literature has influenced the characterization of elderly women in our own culture.

In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, thousands of women confessed to being witches and were put to death. This book is a gripping account of the pursuit, interrogation, torture, and burning of witches, particularly in Germany, as well as a deeper exploration of the psychology of witch-hunting in modern culture. "(A) brilliant piece of investigative history."--"The Guardian ""This ambitious and subtle book is testament not only to Roper's skill in excavating stories from the German archives, but also to her imagination and determination in reading between the lines of examinations and confessions. . . . Compelling, courageous and inspirational."--Malcolm Gaskill, "Journal of the Historical Association"
