Witchcraft Narratives in Germany : Rothenburg, 1561-1652
by Alison Rowlands




Overview -
Given the widespread belief in witchcraft and the existence of laws against such practices, why did witch trials fail to gain momentum and escalate into "witch-crazes" in certain parts of early modern Europe? This book answers this question by focussing on the exceptionally rich legal records of the German city of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. This city is significant in that it experienced a very restrained pattern of witch trials--with just one execution for witchcraft--between 1561 and 1652.
