Download or read book Witch Hunting in Seventeenth Century New England written by and published by Duke University Press. This book was released on 2005-01-14 with total page 384 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This superb documentary collection illuminates the history of witchcraft and witch-hunting in seventeenth-century New England. The cases examined begin in 1638, extend to the Salem outbreak in 1692, and document for the first time the extensive Stamford-Fairfield, Connecticut, witch-hunt of 1692–1693. Here one encounters witch-hunts through the eyes of those who participated in them: the accusers, the victims, the judges. The original texts tell in vivid detail a multi-dimensional story that conveys not only the process of witch-hunting but also the complexity of culture and society in early America. The documents capture deep-rooted attitudes and expectations and reveal the tensions, anger, envy, and misfortune that underlay communal life and family relationships within New England’s small towns and villages. Primary sources include court depositions as well as excerpts from the diaries and letters of contemporaries. They cover trials for witchcraft, reports of diabolical possessions, suits of defamation, and reports of preternatural events. Each section is preceded by headnotes that describe the case and its background and refer the reader to important secondary interpretations. In his incisive introduction, David D. Hall addresses a wide range of important issues: witchcraft lore, antagonistic social relationships, the vulnerability of women, religious ideologies, popular and learned understandings of witchcraft and the devil, and the role of the legal system. This volume is an extraordinarily significant resource for the study of gender, village politics, religion, and popular culture in seventeenth-century New England.

Download or read book The O Briens and the O Flahertys written by (Lady Morgan) Sydney Owenson and published by Broadview Press. This book was released on 2013-02-19 with total page 550 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The O’Briens and the O’Flahertys is a fast-paced tale of political intrigue and aristocratic vanity—a romp through 1793 Dublin as Ireland pitches towards the United Irishmen Uprising of 1798. It follows Murrogh O’Brien as he tries to find his way between his nostalgic father, the politically savvy Irish-Italian nun Beavoin O’Flaherty, the dashing flirt, Lady Knocklofty, the idealistic United Irishmen, and his comically old-fashioned aunts, only to be caught up in a sweep of arrests and revelations in the novel’s dramatic fourth volume. The O’Briens’ original footnotes and authorial digressions detail the failure of colonial policy in Ireland, contributing to the novel’s long-standing reputation as a credible historical account of the turbulent 1790s. This Broadview Edition includes extensive historical documents on Irish politics in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, as well as a selection of contemporary reviews of The O’Briens and the O’Flahertys.

This book was released on 2019-05-18 with total page 50 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Alice Liddell had always known she was different. Discovering her own unique ability to travel between realms by accidentally finding herself in Wonderland as a child sealed that idea firmly as fact. She never doubted the supernatural world surrounding her and her family, especially considering the fact that her best friend since childhood, Dyna, was a shape-shifting cat. She couldn’t deny it even if she tried. Now as a young woman, Alice’s ability has grown stronger, and her sisters, Ina and Edith have manifested their own unique abilities as well; Ina’s ability to concoct herbal solutions for their benefit, and Edith’s uncannily correct premonitions of the future. The sister’s only confidant entrusted with their secrets is the one person who could ever truly believe them-- Prince Leopold, The Duke of Albany, son of Queen Victoria. While at Oxford, the Prince forged a strong bond with the Liddell family; and what had started out as a mild fascination with Alice had quickly grown into something more than just mere friendship, and despite his mother’s objections, he couldn’t deny his undying love for Alice Liddell. But as luck would have it, the only thing stopping him from declaring his love to Alice just happens to be himself. His secret. The darkness surrounding him. And— the Queen, herself. After discovering the Liddell sister’s unique abilities, His mother, Queen Victoria, has her own plans for the girls involving the protection of the British Empire from the supernatural evils plaguing London. Leopold is dead set against his mother’s plan, and will stop at nothing to keep Alice and her sisters from harm—even if it means revealing his own diseased darkness to the only woman who could ever shatter his untamed heart. witch cozy mystery animals cats crafts hobbies vampire Werewolf psychic sword sorcery ghost historical Victorian regency London Queen Victoria magic urban fantasy epic teen young adult fairy tale demons dragons fae wonderland Alice teen romance paranormal short stories series metaphysical paranormal shifter shapeshifter Werewolf, demons dragons fae fantasy fairy tales contemporary suspense thriller female protagonist romance cowboy Christmas vacation coming of age love women’s fiction career marriage friendship dating relationships singlehood urban fantasy witch cozy mystery paranormal romance short stories series serial free menage bear alpha wolf curves BBW shifter shapeshifter paranormal dragon panther lion tiger romance, new adult, vampire, psychic, witch, humor
