Narratives of the Witchcraft Cases: 1648-1706

Kessinger Publishing, May 1, 2003 - History - 480 pages
1914. A volume in the Original Narratives of Early American History series. These narratives of witchcraft are no fairy tales. Weird as they seem to us, they were the most intense of realities to thousands of men and women in 17th century America. They were the bulletins of a war more actual, more cruel, more momentous, than any fray of flesh and blood. To those enlisted in this war in the age-long war of Heaven with Hell, they were instruction, encouragement and appeal. To count the matter a panic local to New England, or even a passing madness in the Christian world, is to take a narrow view of history.
