About this book

This book brings together twelve studies that collectively provide an overview of the main issues of live interest in Scottish witchcraft. As well as fresh studies of the well-established topic of witch-hunting, the book also launches an exploration of some of the more esoteric aspects of magical belief and practice.

Reviews

“This is a book that is fresh and thought-provoking, and its authors are to be congratulated on their varied, precise, and well-researched contributions. … Scottish Witches and Witch-Hunters is a fantastically useful resource, and can only further stimulate work in the area. Julian Goodare and his team of contributors have given us a wide-ranging, provocative, and deeply scholarly volume, in which all the chapters are valuable, and the whole really is more than the sum of the parts.” (Marion Gibson, Folklore, Vol. 126 (3), 2015)
