About the Author

Lyndal Roper, Regius Professor of History at the University of Oxford, is author of Witch Craze: Terror and Fantasy in Baroque Germany.


Lyndal Roper has a reputation among historians for bright, stimulating, even provocative insights into the society and culture of early modern Europe. This collection of essays is no exception. It will go down as a pioneering book in witchcraft studies. Original, theoretically sophisticated, and superbly grounded in fascinating historical material, this is a splendid challenge to scholars to follow her in new and interesting directions. It is a virtuoso performance by a historian at the height of her powers.

--Thomas Robisheaux, Duke University, author of The Last Witch of Langenburg: Murder in a German Village

Much of the argument and method of this collection is laid out clearly in the intro- duction, although the sustained essays are a pleasure to read, beautifully crafted and harmoniously balanced by the elegant virtuosity of the physical edition. From font to binding, this is a book that celebrates the physicality of the text.

--The German Studies Assocication
