9781899874460: Magic and Witchcraft in Scotland

A fascinating examination into the belief and practice of magic by ordinary people in Scotland in the medieval and early modern period. The book explains not only what was done but, crucially, also why, with sections on healing rituals, use of wells, stones and talismans, and festivals. Harmful magic is then described, how this overlapped with folk belief, the diabolic pact and elite thought, and the horrors of witchcraft prosecutions in the 16th and 17th centuries. Also included is a section on sacred sites, museums, and other places of interest which can be visited, and there are many illustrations, a map, and a full index.
