Product Description

This is the first book exclusively devoted to demonic possession and exorcism in early modern England. It offers, for the first time, modernized versions of the most significant early modern texts on nine cases of demonic possession from the period 1570 to 1650, the key period in English history for demonic possession. The nine stories were all written by eye-witnesses or were derived from eye-witness reports. They involve matters of life and death, sin and sanctity, quilt and innocence, of crimes which could not be committed and punishments which could not be deserved. The nine critical introductions which accompany the stories address the different strategic intentions of those who wrote them. The modernized texts and critical introductions are place within the context of a wide-ranging general introduction to demonic possession in England across the period 1550 to 1700.
