Summary
During the Salem witch trials, more than 150 people -- primarily women -- from 24 communities were charged with witchcraft; 19 were hanged and others died in prison. This book explores the beliefs, fears, and historical context that fueled the witch panic of 1692. The documents in this volume illuminate how the Puritans' worldview led them to seek a supernatural explanation for the problems vexing their community. Presented as case studies, the records from several trials offer a clear picture of the gender norms and social tensions that underlie the witchcraft accusations
