      Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft

      by Walter Scott

      Review


      From the writer of such classics as Ivanhoe and The Lady of the Lake comes Sir Walter Scott's Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft wherein Scott discusses and, largely, criticizes the beliefs and treatment of witchcraft in Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries.

      Scott being a renowned author throughout much of the world during his lifetime, as well as a Christian, his views and scepticism on the titled subjects were, and continue to be, well respected.

      Containing much in the way of fascinating and accurate content Letters on Demonology and Witchcraft is a reliable and enjoyable read for those with an interest in both the subject matter itself and the historical aspect of the information.

      Excerpt


      The blameless Muse who trains her sons For hope and calm enjoyment.

      Here we remember only how from among dark clouds the last light of his genius shone on the path of those who were endeavouring to make the daily bread of intellectual life — good books — common to all.
