There is no reason for the Salem Witch Craft Trials — at least no instantly understandable one from our modern point of view. The majority of Western civilisation, firstly, would certainly deny magic had any impact on their life and, secondly, would not tolerate such violence as a normal measure of justice. In the seventeenth century, people were still confronted with much more basic threats than just the modern possible lack of self-actualisation.
Popular Culture in England, c. Popular culture has been one of the most fruitful areas of study in social history. As readers of this volume are by now aware, the concept of popular culture is not without its problems: it is too easily reined, it easily becomes static and unified, and it suggests too sharp a divide between elite and popular.
Written in English. In the first edition of the Bancroft Prize-winning Entertaining Satan, John Putnam Demos presented an entirely new perspective on American veterans-opex. We're talking about hundreds of occult invocations.
For almost three centuries, witchcraft in New England has been associated in the popular mind with the justly infamous episodes in and around Salem in —93, when Puritan society, as most accounts would have it, finally was overwhelmed by the guilt and paranoia that never lay far beneath its surface. Focusing on the 93 recorded episodes of witchcraft in New England, outside of Salem, during the 17th century, Demos greatly expands our knowledge of those individuals who practiced maleficium and in the process demonstrates how greatly our appreciation of early New England culture can be enriched by an attempt to synthesize the work of demographers, psychohistorians, anthropologists, and others whose work hitherto has remained too much in the purview of members of their own disciplines.

Palgrave Advances in Witchcraft Historiography pp Cite as. Scholars of witchcraft have often been pioneers of new forms of historical study and interdisciplinary developments, as the subject touches upon many fundamental issues regarding the human experience both in the past and the present. The analysis of witchcraft accusations demands an understanding of the processes of social negotiation, the structure of communities, and the nature of gender relations. Decoding the meaning of witchcraft beliefs requires grappling with the research and theories of anthropology, folkloristics and psychology, even if their application raises serious issues regarding the application of contemporary notions and behaviour to people in the past. Few topics in historical research invite so much interdisciplinary engagement, demand such a broad exploration of historical processes and yet give so much free reign to our historical imagination.
