The Discoverie of Witchcraft

The Discoverie of Witchcraft.
Reginald Scot
London, 1584

For many in England, witches, black magic, and evil spells were a part of everyday life. But for others, the persecution of witches and sorcerers was a relic of medieval superstition. In The Discoverie of Witchcraft, Reginald Scot argues that such persecution is immoral and that fear of evil magic is both a vestige of Roman Catholicism and a type of delusion.
