Enchanted Europe

Superstition, Reason, and Religion 1250-1750

Euan Cameron

  • From the bestselling author of The European Reformation
  • Charts the rise and fall of superstition in European history - from magical healing, spells, and divination, to the widespread belief in fairies and demons
  • Comprehensive and wide-ranging - explores the debate over folklore from medieval times, through to the Renaissance, Reformation, and the Enlightenment
  • Sets shifting nature of 'superstition' in historical context - from threat to 'true religion' to 'harmless' ethnic heritage
