Review: Religion and the Decline of Magic: Studies in Popular Beliefs in Sixteenth and Seventeenth Century England

User Review  - Smoothw - Goodreads

I especially liked the detailed look at witchcraft and astrology, most other sources I have read on that subject just sort of shrug their shoulders at why this stuff actually happened.
