1612 Lancashire Witche Trial

1612: The Lancashire Witch Trials

£6.95

This excellent little book is a wonderful introduction to the story of the Pendle witch trials of 1612. In a very lively and readable style, Christine Goodier provides a who’s who of the events, as well as an interesting angle on the trials themselves.

Product Description

Christine Goodier emphasises that the accused were merely flesh and blood, not demons, arguing that they were poor, uneducated people who were at worst misguided. Her inevitable conclusion is that a terrible injustice was done 400 years ago when they were famously convicted of witchcraft and hanged.
