Witchcraft and Magic - Early Modern England - Keith E Wrightson - Lecture 14 of 25 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, United Kingdom History

Description: In this lecture, Professor Wrightson discusses witchcraft and magic. He begins with the context of magic beliefs in this period, introducing the 'cunning folk' who had reputations as healers and were often consulted. He then considers the specific problem of witchcraft, the use of magic to do harm, and its identification by the late medieval church as a form of anti-Christian cult.
