The Devil in the Shape of a Man: Witchcraft, Conflict and Belief in Jacobean England. By: Gaskill, Malcolm; Historical Research, Jun98, Vol. 71 Issue 175, p. 142, 30p; Historians agree that most early modern witches were women. A question rarely asked, though, is how any men came to be accused at all, given the strong association of women and witchcraft in popular folklore and learned demonology. This article examines the prosecution for witchcraft of a Kentish farmer in 1617, and argues that an integrated qualitative context of conflict and belief is essential for understanding this and other accusations. The aim is not, however, to offer yet another overarching explanation for the rise of witchcraft prosecutions, but rather to demonstrate how witchcraft can open windows on early modern mentalities.

The elements of disenchantment, such as spells, charms, and superstition, were already present in the late medieval period, deriving from long-developed conceptions of the operation of magic. Authors of fifteenth-century witchcraft treatises regarded the practice of witchcraft and other common spells and charms. Witchcraft functioned through demonic agency, these authorities insisted, not through any power inherent in the simple rites the witches might perform. (item 20715134)

The occasion was a seminar at Harvard organised by Stephen Mitchell and Neil Price to mark the twentieth anniversary of Carlo Ginzburg's influential book on the connections between witches and shamanism -- and by implication the possible connections with prehistoric ritual and belief. Archaeology was by no means the only voice at the meeting, which was attended by scholars active in history, literature, divinity and anthropology. The discussions revealed much that was entangled in the modern psyche: 'don't let's tame strangeness' was one leitmotiv of this stimulating colloquium. A romantic attachment to the irrational is a feature of our time, especially among academics. But maybe taming strangeness is an archaeologist's real job… (item 53852409)

Witchcraft and Rebellion in Late Seventeenth-Century Devon.

The judicial records of the case are fairly limited, contained only in missives from the Calendar State Papers Domestic, and the memoirs of the trial judge. Publishers in London, however, provided a much greater range of source material to the reading public, including a heavily edited transcript of depositions that created the accepted version of the proceedings, and entirely fictitious accounts that bore little relation to the actual events. The needs of both the print media and the political parties distorted the actual incidents of the case, but provided the only memory of it for popular culture. (item 23420887)

Witchcraft on the Spanish-Mexican Borderlands. By: Castañeda, Antonia I.; Reader's Companion to U.S. Women's History, 1998, p. 638, 2p; The article deals with accusations of witchcraft against women on the Spanish-Mexican borderlands. From the mid-sixteenth to the mid-nineteenth century, brujería and hechicería on the borderlands were defined as heresy and criminal acts. During the fifteenth century, Roman Catholicism and the new Spanish nation-state initiated a Christian order and a nationalism rooted in the reinscription of misogyny and the violent extirpation of the religious, political, racial, linguistic, and cultural other, specifically Jews and Muslims, from the body politic. To accomplish this, the church and state initiated the Inquisition, a political institution designed to remove heretical non-Christian beliefs and practices in Spain.
