In the period from the first Scottish Witchcraft Act in 1563 under Mary Queen of Scots to its repeal in 1736, an estimated 4000 witches were arrested with 2000 put to their deaths. This book contains the key facts of over 14 famous witch trials (including Bessie Dunlop, and North Berwick Witches) as well as witchcraft in poetry and fiction. The introduction in this new edition encapsulates how anti-witch beliefs that began in ancient Rome rippled out across the world for 500 years.
