Product Description

Synopsis

Bringing together scholars from Europe, America, and Australia, this volume explores the more fantastic elements of popular religious belief: ghosts, werewolves, spiritualism, animism, and of course, witchcraft. These traditional religious belief and practices are frequently treated as marginal in more synthetic studies of witchcraft and popular religion, yet Protestants and Catholics alike saw ghosts, imps, werewolves, and other supernatural entities as populating their world. Embedded within notarial and trial records are accounts that reveal the integration of folkloric and theological elements in early modern spirituality. Drawing from extensive archival research, the contributors argue for the integration of such beliefs into our understanding of late medieval and early modern Europe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Especially recommended for folklore and religious history reference shelves 3 Dec 2005
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Werewolves, Witches, And Wandering Spirits: Traditional Belief & Folklore In Early Modern Europe is an anthology of essays by learned scholars of Europe, America and Australia concerning the fantastic elements of popular religious belief: ghosts, werewolves, spiritualism, animism, and witchcraft. Though such beliefs are often marginalized in studies of popular religion, Protestants and Catholics alike of the era truly believed that supernatural entities such as ghosts, imps, and werewolves existed. Essays draw from in-depth archival research, and the contributors make a forceful case for the importance of integrating such beliefs and folklore into human understanding of late medieval and early modern Europe. Especially recommended for folklore and religious history reference shelves.
