1862 Wonders of Invisible World Salem Witch Trials Occult Cotton Mather Puritan INCREDIBLY FASCINATING CONTENTS/ comp@$1k+ Wonders of the Invisible World was a book published in 1693 by Cotton Mather, defending Mather’s role in the witchhunt conducted in Salem, Massachusetts, and espousing the belief that witchcraft was an evil magical power. Mather saw witches as tools of the devil in Satan’s battle to “overturn this poor plantation, the Puritan colony”, and prosecution of witches as a way to secure God’s blessings for the colony. Cotton Mather (1663 – 1728) was a socially and politically influential New England Puritan minister, prolific author and pamphleteer. Known for his vigorous support for the Salem witch trials, Mather also left a scientific legacy due to his hybridization experiments and his promotion of inoculation for disease prevention.
