European Witch Hunts

Very interesting and detailed article

Death statistics on European witch hunts in which the author states; "I include this because wildly exaggerated claims about the number of women killed in the witch crazes are often mixed in with other complaints 'against patriarchy'."

Population Policy, the Origin of Christian Family Morals and their Impact on World History. "This article deals with some aspects of the Great European Witch Hunts of early modern times. It will focus mainly on some aspects that are usually ignored or mentioned only in passing."

Christmas Witchcraft in 17th-century Finnmark, Northern-Norway. "One Christmas Eve, while Mari Jrgensdatter was lying in bed, the Devil came visiting. Having awakened Mari, he insisted that she go to Kirsti. Mari did as the Devil requested."

The 1627 Witch Trial Of Quiwe Baarsen

"A criminal case was brought against a Sami shaman (noaidi) called Quiwe Baarsen, working as a servant for Norwegians at Aarya, in Altafjorden. From 1603 until 1607 he lived in Lappojavrre, at this time in the Swedish-Norwegian borderlands (Lapland). In 1608 he moved to Porsangerfjorden."

"During the era of the witch-hunts, Finland was a territory of the Swedish Kingdom. Her population had reached its height at more than half a million (1694)."

Witches and Witch trials in England, the Channel Islands, Ireland and Scotland which are "based on the "Calendar of Witch Trials" in European witch trials, their foundations in popular and learned culture, 1300-1500."

About a witch hunt & trial in Germany

How the trial of Doctor Fian Began a New Craze "Before 1591, witch persecutions were occurring in Scotland, but in limited numbers. It is after the trial of Doctor Fian that the witch hunts in Scotland, and later England, flourished. This trial had far reaching effects due to its association to King James VI, later King James I of England."

An online book about "The Malleus Maleficarum (The Witch Hammer), first published in 1486, is arguably one of the most infamous books ever written, due primarily to its position and regard during the Middle Ages. It served as a guidebook for inquisitors during the inquisition, and was designed to aid them in the identification, prosecution, and dispatching of Witches."

A text only translation.

There are approximately 3500 titles in this bibliography of materials available for download.

A Comparative Study of "What characteristics predisposed individuals to accusations of witchcraft? In looking at both the accused themselves and at the accusations, one is struck with many notable similarities between witches in Scotland and witches in East Anglia. This paper will examine those similarities as well as highlighting the differences in treatment of the accused."

Witch Trials of Scotland. "Scotland is second only to Germany in the barbarity of its witch trials. The Presbyterian clergy acted like inquisitors, and the church sessions often shared the prosecution with the secular law."

These are all documented incidents in the killings of "witches." "Only incidents solely relating to witchcraft accusations have been included."

Burn the Witch: the Forfar witch hunts of the 1660's. "In 1563 the newly created Church of Scotland made it illegal to either be a witch or to consult a witch in an attempt to stamp out pagan practices. This Act of Parliament was not abandoned until 1736. In between."

"Modern Witchcraft, or Wicca, is a serious, positive, nature-based religion that is growing rapidly in the United States and has broad appeal for young people."
