Enchanted Europe - Superstition, Reason, and Religion 1250-1750

Charts the rise and fall of superstition in European history - from magical healing, spells, and divination, to the widespread belief in fairies and demons.
Comprehensive and wide-ranging - explores the debate over folklore from medieval times, through to the Renaissance, Reformation, and the Enlightenment
Sets shifting nature of `superstition` in historical context - from threat to `true religion` to `harmless` ethnic heritage.
Since the dawn of history people have used charms and spells to try to control their environment, and forms of divination to try to foresee the otherwise unpredictable chances of life. Many of these techniques were called `superstitious` by educated elites.
