There is no lack of books about the shameful era of witch hunting most intense from 1450 1750 Most authors have their own pet theory of the main cause of the travesty personal revenge misogyny the Protestants the Catholics religious intolerance in general societal changes political maneuvering mass hysteria etc Brian Levack rejects the idea of a monolithic witch hunt driven by one or two all explaining reasons Instead he interacts with a wide range of primary source data and scholarly views regarding the rise continuation and decline of witch hunting and argues that certain aspects of most of these views are applicable to varying degrees depending on the location size and time of individual witch hunts Whether or not all of his surmises are accurate I appreciated the relative objectivity and complexity of his approachOne of his main themes that I found particularly interesting was his distinction between maleficia trying to cause harm through magic and diabolism the worship of the devilespecially in an organized collective witches Sabbath fashion He does not go into whether magic actually works or the devil actually exists but offers analysis on whether there were people that actually attempted to practiced either or both of these supposed witches were generally accused of both He argues that the practice of maleficia certainly existed to some extent but that organized collective diabolism was almost entirely a figment of Medieval Christian imagination He regards this belief in diabolism as an important precondition for witch hunts accelerating from the occasional burning of a disliked old woman to the wide scale state sponsored panics that consumed hundreds of victims It reminded me a lot of the weird Satanic Ritual Abuse panic from the 80 s and 90 s the reason a whole generation of Conservative Evangelical kids weren t allowed to go trick or treatingthough I suppose that s better than thousands of people being executedI felt like the author occasionally mischaracterized Christian especially Reformed doctrinal development and beliefs but overall the book was well research and thoughtfully argued a must read if you are interested in this topic
