The Witch Panic of the 16th and 17th Centuries in the Western World

This course examines the widespread witchcraft panic resulting in the deaths of as many as 100,000 women, men, and children in Europe and the American colonies. The panic reveals much about the culture of that period. It also provides a useful lens through which to view contemporary "witch hunts" and to reflect on questions about human society that allow the persecution of particular individuals.
