New date added due to threats of curses from disappointed punters when the last one sold out.
Andrew Snedden is the author of ‘Possessed by the Devil, the Real History of the Islandmagee Witches’, ‘Witchcraft and Whigs’ & ‘Witchcraft and Magic in Ireland’. Using the Islandmagee Witch Trials of 1711 as a jumping off point Andrew will examine the dynamics of witchcraft belief and accusation in the early modern period across Ireland and Europe. We’ll examine the role of cunning-folk and popular magic in Irish society and attitudes of authorities to their activities.
