The Burning Time: witchcraft in the seventeenth century - Dr Janet Few
In the 16th and 17th centuries, a wave of witchcraft accusations swept Europe and North America,
creating an era that became known as ‘The Burning Time’.
Few of our ancestors were directly involved in witchcraft trials, either as the accused or the accuser,
but all of our sixteenth and seventeenth century forebears lived in a world where there was an underlying
belief in and fear of witchcraft.
This was a climate in which mass hysteria could easily tip the balance and create an atmosphere
where our ancestors and their neighbours would become caught up in witchcraft fever.
Hope to see many of you there.
