Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft

Type: Books

Walter Scott's magnum opus on witchcraft and demonology is one of the most in depth and intelligent works of its entire era. Informed by the secular wisdom of the Enlightenment, it exposes fraud and stupidity in religious and spiritual circles while relating anecdotal and historical tales of imps, witches, banshees, demons, Satan, and much more. An invaluable philosophical treatise and a historical tract in ten letters twain, "Letters on Witchcraft and Demonology" relates dozens of tales from dozens of cultures, forming a rational and intricate look at the burning times, demonology, the occult, witchery, and far more. Modern English edition.
