Description
"Witchcraft is a dramatic journey through thirteen witch trials across history, some famous -- like the Salem witch trials -- and some lesser-known: on Vardø island, Norway, in the 1620s, where an indigenous Sami woman was accused of murder; in France in 1731, during the country's last witch trial, where a young woman was pitted against her confessor and cult leader; in Pennsylvania in 1929 where a magical healer was labelled a "witch"; in Lesotho in 1948, where British colonial authorities executed local leaders. Exploring how witchcraft became feared, decriminalized, reimagined, and eventually reframed as gendered persecution, Witchcraft takes on the intersections between gender and power, indigenous spirituality and colonial rule, and political conspiracy and individual resistance. Offering a vivid, compelling, and dramatic story, unspooling through centuries, about the men and women who were accused -- some of whom survived their trials, and some who did not -- Witchcraft empowers the people who were and are victimized and marginalized, giving a voice to those who were silenced by history."--Amazon.com.
