This seminar will explore the age of the “Witch Hunts.” We will examine some of necessary preconditions for the rise and fall of the hunts while also examining the accused. In addition, we will survey the practice of some forms of magic available to people during this time period - including astrology, alchemy, and various forms of divination - and their practitioners.
