Religion and the Decline of Magic – Keith Thomas

Religion and the Decline of Magic - Keith ThomasWitchcraft, astrology, divination and every kind of popular magic flourished in England during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, from the belief that a blessed amulet could prevent the assaults of the Devil to the use of the same charms to recover stolen goods.
