Demonomania and Witchcraft: Now Available!
This short but extremely interesting work is a historical view to the rationalism of the mid 1800s. Written by Joseph Workman (MD) an apparent specialist in insanity, it refutes and also draws from the Burning Times and the Salem Witch Trials. Filled with anecdotes, it is historically valuable both for its coverage of earlier events as well as its historical context in the early industrial era with the changing interpretation of witchery and demonology of that age.
