This book is the first major study of England's biggest and best-known witch trial which took place in 1612, when ten witches were arraigned and hung in the village of Pendle in Lancashire. The book has equal appeal across the disciplines of both History and English Literature/Renaissance Studies, with essays by the leading experts in both fields. Includes helpful summaries to explain the key points of each essay. Brings the subject up-to-date with a study of modern Wicca and paganism, including present-day Lancashire witches. Quite simply, this is the most comprehensive study of any English witch trial.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The standard of the various articles is impressive, and it is apparent that they are all based on thorough, rigorous research. The book's layout and general organization is particularly pleasing. The introductory sections to each of the sections are clear, concise and very helpful for readers." -- Bob Walinski-Kiehl, The University of Portsmouth
