Having read Ginzburg before, I bought this with some disappointed expectation of delving more deeply into European witchcraft. Indeed, the author does begin with an examination of the phenomenon, but most of the books travels far afield from its starting point. Still, the starting point--getting at the beliefs of those accused of witchcraft themselves--is interesting. Most studies of witchcraft have focused on the record, records kept by inquisitors and persecutors, treating the accused either as poor, deluded individuals or as practitioners of pre-Christian religions a thesis commonly identified with Margaret Murray. Ginzburg, however, believes that by separating out of the record assertions not fitting the expectations of the persecuting authorities one can approach some sense of what the "witches" themselves believed.
