Series: Exeter Studies in History. Chapter 4 Scottish Witchcraft Before the North Berwick Witch Hunt.

This volume provides a valuable introduction to the key concepts of witchcraft and demonology through a detailed study of one of the best known and most notorious episodes of Scottish history, the North Berwick witch hunt, in which King James was involved as alleged victim, interrogator, judge and demonologist. It provides hitherto unpublished and inaccessible material from the legal documentation of the trials in a way that makes the material fully comprehensible, as well as full texts of the pamphlet News from Scotland and James' Demonology, all in a readable, modernised, scholarly form.  Full introductory sections and supporting notes provide information about the contexts needed to understand the texts: court politics, social history and culture, religious changes, law and the workings of the court, and the history of witchcraft prosecutions in Scotland before 1590. The book also brings to bear on this material current scholarship on the history of European witchcraft.

Not much I can say that the product description doesn't. I just wanted to add my 5 stars to this excellent and superior effort. Be warned, this does not read as a popular history, but is rather a thoroughly academic investigation of the source materials in regard to the North Berwick Witch Trials whereby King James VI defended the royal houses of Denmark and Scotland from attack by conspiring witches. Fascinating stuff, but not recommended for those without prior foundation in the history of Scottish witchcraft persecutions. To that end, Enemies of God: The Witch-Hunt in Scotland is an equally excellent introduction. Enjoy!

This book was bought so I could write a term paper for school.
it's well written, good to read and has a lot of history in it. If you are a history buff this book would be a good one for your collection.
