About EM Pamphlets

Early Modern Pamphlets began as a collection of pamphlets that treat cases of witchcraft or possession. It fulfills various functions, including:

— it is a finding aid for students in my courses.

— it offers people interested in early modern witchcraft and possession a convenient place to survey popular opinions about both.

— as it grows, students will contribute to each pamphlet by building research projects around them and posting their results.

— in the future it will include pamphlets on various prodigious meteorological phenomena (e.g., comets, hail, thunder).

Each post provides a summary of the pamphlet, a series of tags that categorize the pamphlet’s content, a link to on-line copies. Eventually, many of the posts will include EPUB versions of the pamphlet.
