Summary ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Brian P. Levack Free download The Witch Hunt in Early Modern Europe ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB This famous book focuses on the great age of witch hunting in Europe and colonial America between 1450 and 1750 It examines why the witch trials took place; how many trials and victims there were and where; why t. This is a nice sober recounting of a subject that s often pretty sensationalist Levack argues that the two long term causes of the rise of witchcraft accusations in the 16th and 17th century were the prominence of the devil in witchcraft accusations and the involvement of local secular courts in prosecutions The concept of witchcraft was very old but in the past it had usually centered on the concept of maleficia doing harm usually to a neighbor This was always frowned upon but things were taken to a new height when the emphasis shifted to the diabolical aspect of witchcraft which likely had trickled down from the medieval court magicians who claimed to be able to command demons for the sake of good This made everything uite a bit uglier primarily because it transformed witchcraft from a crime to an act of heresy This allowed for the local secular court to step in Interestingly secular courts were nearly always stricter in witchcraft persecutions than ecclesiastical ones Regions where justice was decentralized particularly the Holy Roman Empire and Scotland saw the worst bursts of violence and accusations while areas of centralized ecclesiastical justice like Spain saw very few The Spanish Inuisition is not known as a bastion of tolerance but if you were accused of being a witch it was probably one of the best places to be tried Levack also suggests that the Reformation didn t cause witch hunt witch trials were going on 100 years before the 95 Theses but it probably did intensify and uicken its spread by its promotion of biblical literalism and condemnation of superstition In the end he argues that despite all of these overarching causes most persecutions were local and were caused by local events They eventually petered out as it became increasingly clear that many accusations were entirely specious and as ecclesiastical authors and jurists promoted heavy skepticism about the reality of or the ability to identify witchcraft It s a relatively dry book and if you re looking for a lot of exciting and salacious witchcraft stories there are better places to go But if you want a balanced sober account of things this is a great intro
