Book Review:

The anthropological approach to the expulsion of the foreign women from the post-exilic community argues that it was the result of a witch-hunt. Its comparative approach notes that the community responded to its weak social boundaries in the same fashion as societies with similar social weaknesses. This book argues that the post-exilic community's decision to expel the foreign women in its midst was the direct result of the community's inability to enforce a common morality among its members. This anthropological approach to the expulsion shows how other societies with weak social moralities tend to react with witch-hunts, and it suggests that the expulsion in Ezra 9-10 was precisely such an activity. It concludes with an examination of the political and economic forces that could have eroded the social morality of the community.

Book Review:

When bigotry and power-mania take control, disaster always follows for ordinary people - even when the power is wielded by the Church. Witchcraft, of course, was seen as devil-worship. Those accused - over 100,000 people, mainly women, between 1450 and 1750 - were subjected to the most bestial tortures and usually executed. Witch Hunt examines t...

Book Review:

This history explores the lives and trials of the accused during Sweden’s seventeenth-century witch hunts. It may come as a surprise that Sweden had a witch hunt and that it was a precursor to Salem’s witch trials. Märit Hansdotter and Karl Karlsson lived in an age of war, religious upheaval, and general discord. Their home, Karlsgården, was the site of tremendous heartache, tragedy, love and survival. It overlooked the Ljusnan River on a pilgrimage road between Uppsala and Saint Olaf’s shrine in Norway. Märit was sentenced to death, twice, for things she could not have done. Karl was sentenced to death, twice, for things he might have done. Tapping into numerous historical sources—most of them unavailable in English—author and historian Charlene Hanson Jordan details the customs, traditions, relationships, and lifestyles of seventeenth-century Sweden while exploring her family’s history and considering the dangers of an imbalance of power between church and state that allowed the development and spreading of an extreme notion about evil.
