The European Witch-craze of the 16th and 17th Centuries

In this study, Professor Trevor-Roper reveals the social and intellectual background to the witch-craze of the 16th and 17th centuries. Orthodoxy and heresy had become deeply entrenched notions in religion and ethics as an evangelical church exaggerated the heretical theology and loose morality of its opponents. Gradually, non-conformists as well as whole societies began to be seen in terms of stereotypes and witches became the scapegoats for all the ills of society.

Sie trennen Jahrhunderte – aber ein magisches Erbe verbindet sie Connie Goodwin ist eine hervorragende Studentin der Harvard Universität und schreibt gerade an ihrer Doktorarbeit über Sitten und Gebräuche im Amerika des 17. Jahrhunderts. Ihr Spezialgebiet sind die Hexenverfolgungen in Salem. Als Connies Mutter Grace sie eines Tages bittet, das halbverfallene Haus der Großmutter in Marblehead, Massachusetts, in Ordnung zu bringen, ist Connie wenig begeistert. Mit gemischten Gefühlen reist sie in das Küstenstädtchen, das nicht weit von Salem entfernt liegt. Immerhin hofft Connie, in den alten Kirchenregistern von Salem etwas über die Hexenprozesse zu finden, und ist froh, dass ihr der gutaussehende Restaurator Sam, den sie in der Kirche antrifft, bei den Recherchen helfen möchte. Kurz darauf entdeckt Connie im verwunschenen Haus der Großmutter ein vergilbtes Pergament, das sie auf die Spur eines alten Buches mit sonderbaren Formeln und Rezepten bringt. Als sie ihrer Mutter von dem Folianten erzählt, ist diese nicht überrascht: Grace weiß von dem Buch, das lange im Familienbesitz war, und warnt ihre Tochter, sich damit zu beschäftigen. Gemeinsam mit Sam kommt Connie schließlich einem gefährlichen Familiengeheimnis auf die Spur – und entdeckt plötzlich seltsame Fähigkeiten an sich selbst ... Ein großer Frauenroman, der im heutigen Neuengland und im 17. Jahrhundert spielt.

Pressestimmen zur 1. und 2. Auflage: "Behringers Buch basiert auf breiter Quellengrundlage, besticht durch abwägende Interpretation, als deren Folie die internationale Diskussion erscheint. Ihm ist eine Darstellung gelungen, die zum Besten zählt, was je über das Thema geschrieben wurde - ein Standardwerk von hohem Rang, durch das Bayern zu den paradigmatischen Regionen auf der imaginären Landkarte der So-zialgeschichte werden dürfte." Bernd Roeck, Vierteljahrschriften für Sozial- und Wirtschaftsgeschichte, Heft 75/1 (1988) "Solidly documented, cautiously argued, and lucidly written, this book will stand as a classic in the historio-graphy of witchhunts." Ronnie Pochia Hsia, The Sixteenth Century Journal, No. 19 (1988)

The Evolution of Women's Asylums Since 1500

The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in Catholic Europe witnessed the growth of new institutions designed to house repentant prostitutes and girls and women at risk of becoming prostitutes. This little-known surge in institution building arose out of the Catholic reform movement and the Counter Reformation. Cohen presents a portrait of life in three such institutions for women in the Italian cities of Florence and Pistoia. In Western societies from the sixteenth century onward, far more types of gender-specific institutions have been created for women than for men. The institutions for women served many social functions, usually including the control of women's sexuality. Representing a new residential option for women beyond the traditional ones of marriage or convent, these institutions were "asylums" in a dual sense, operating as both sites of internment and shelters from harm. Cohen demonstrates how the multi-functional women's institutions of the early modern era served as the prototypes for a variety of asylums for women that emerged in later centuries - including hostels, homes for unwed mothers, and battered women's shelters. In a major revision of the historiography of social institutions, Cohen argues that the women's institutions of early modern Europe played a pioneering role in developing techniques and institutional forms in the fields of corrections and social welfare.
