The European Witch Hunt in World Context: Some Further Thoughts

Professor Ronald Hutton

3:30pm, Wednesday 1st March, Lecture Theatre D, Streatham Court (University of Exeter). Followed by a drinks reception from around 5:00pm.


Abstract

Witch-hunting is not a thing of the past, but an increasingly serious problem in large areas of the developing world, and it has recently been made the subject of a United Nations resolution. This lecture is intended to explain how the European witch-hunting of the early modern period fitted into the general world pattern, how it differed from it, and whether any lessons can be drawn from the European experience which can be of use to the rest of the planet.
