Julian Goodare sets out an original interpretation of witch-hunting as an episode of persecution by the ‘godly state’ in the era of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation. Full weight is also given to the context of village social relationships, and there is a detailed analysis of gender issues. Witch-hunting eventually declined when the ideological pressure to combat the Devil’s allies slackened. This book is the ideal resource for students exploring the history of witch-hunting.

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.

This book is a collection of essays on Scottish witchcraft and witch-hunting, which covers the whole period of the Scottish witch-hunt, from the mid-16th century to the early 18th. It particularly emphasizes the later stages, since scholars are now as keen to explain why witch-hunting declined as why it occurred. There are studies of particular witchcraft panics, including a reassessment of the role of King James VI. The book thus covers a wide range of topics concerned with Scottish witch-hunting – and also places it in the context of other topics: gender relations, folklore, magic and healing, and moral regulation by church and state.
