Between 1450 and 1750, more than 100,000 people - mainly women - in Europe and colonial America were prosecuted for practising harmful magic and worshipping the devil. Tens of thousands were executed, often after being subjected to bestial tortures. Examines this persecution, and the religious hysteria which inspired it, tracing its roots back to the savage suppression of the heretical Waldensian sect by the Catholic Church. With the creation of the Inquisition, and the publication of the book 'Witchfinders' Bible', the craze soon spread across Europe and reached as far as the United States where, despite the infamy of the Salem Witch Trials, it was soon dismissed by a more rational population. Although witch trials continued in Scotland until 1727, Norway until 1760 and Hungary until 1777, the growth of scientific reason gradually gained ground from the witch hunters. ISBN: 1841931845.

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press (CUP). 309 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, minor edgewear. This book revolutionises our understanding of race. Building upon the insight that races are products of culture rather than biology, demonstrates that the Bible - the key text in Western culture - has left a vivid imprint on modern racial theories and prejudices. Fixing his attention on the changing relationship between race and theology in the Protestant Atlantic world between 1600 and 2000, he shows that, while the Bible itself is colour-blind, its interpreters have imported racial significance into the scriptures. Kidd's study probes the theological anxieties that lurked behind the confident facade of of white racial supremacy in the age of empire and race slavery, as well as the ways in which racialist ideas left their mark upon new forms of religiosity. Essential reading for anyone interested in the histories of race or religion. ISBN: 0521797292. Our Book No: 10871. $40 AUD.
