THE WITCH: A HISTORY OF FEAR FROM ANCIENT TIMES TO PRESENT
10am
Upper Room Town Hall
£7

‘Ronald Hutton examines attitudes on witchcraft and the treatment of suspected witches across the world, and from ancient pagan times to current interpretations. His fresh anthropological and ethnographical approach focuses on cultural inheritance and change while considering shamanism, folk religion, the range of witch trials, and how the fear of witchcraft might be eradicated.
‘a rigorous interdisciplinary approach’ The New York Times
‘Magisterial’ The Guardian
‘we would do well to learn from the history Hutton depicts’ The Washington Post
‘Highly recommended for those fascinated by the nature and extent of the notorious European witch trials’ Sir Tony Robinson
Ronald Hutton professor of history, University of Bristol, is a documentary maker and a leading authority on ancient, medieval, and modern paganism, on the history of the British Isles in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and on the global context of witchcraft beliefs. His books include Blood and Mistletoe, Pagan Britain, and The Rise and Fall of Merry England.
