Demonomania and Witchcraft: An Occult Reference

Type: Books

"Demonomania" is an early secular look at the burning times and witch craze of past centuries. Written by Doctor Joseph Workman, it rationalizes the entire period encompassing the Salem Witch Trials and the persecution of the insane by King James I. Now vaguely outmoded in its medical lore, this manuscript is of great interest as a look at early industrial era rationalism applied to the occult and to witchery and demonology in general.
