by St. JOHN D. SEYMOUR, B.D.by St. JOHN D. SEYMOUR, B.D.by St. JOHN D. SEYMOUR, B.D.by St. JOHN D. SEYMOUR, B.D.
[1913][1913][1913][1913]This is a survey of the Witch persecution in Ireland, as well as a wide array of other paranormal events such as poltergeists, ghosts, apparations and even anearly UFO account. Very readable, yet well documented, this book has theextensive and fascinating quotes from historical source documents.
Seymour proposes that the witch-craze was more muted in Ireland than elsewhere inEurope. Relatively speaking, there appear to have been fewer cases in Ireland. Thisdoesn't mean that the consequences were any less harsh for the accused. In these texts wecan see how people exhibiting what we would today consider schizophrenic or senilebehavior were vulnerable to being accused of witchcraft.
