Scepticism and belief in English witchcraft drama, 1538—1681

First Edition

Eric Pudney

Lund University Press in association with Manchester University Press

  • Provides a comprehensive overview of the history of witchcraft in early modern English drama
  • Connects with widespread recent scholarly interest in, and reappraisal of, scepticism and disenchantment in western intellectual history
  • Situates literary texts within the intellectual and material context that produced them and contributes to historical debates about witchcraft
  • Covers the entire early modern period, from John Bale's early witch play Three Laws (1538) to the Restoration DS an important but often neglected period in witchcraft drama
