Thinking with Demons: The Idea of Witchcraft in Early Modern Europe

Voorkant
Oxford University Press, 1999 - 827 pagina's
This is a work of fundamental importance for our understanding of the intellectual and cultural history of early modern Europe. Stuart Clark offers a new interpretation of the witchcraft beliefs of European intellectuals based on their publications in the field of demonology, and shows how these beliefs fitted rationally with many other views current in Europe between the fifteenth and eighteenth centuries.
