Editorial Reviews


"Michael Ostling's study of witchcraft in early modern Poland explores the murky, productive borerlands between long-established categories of analysis. His work lingers at cultural and geographic crossroads, in the indeterminate zones occupied by the phenomenon of Polish witchcraft itself." --Slavic Review

"This is an invaluable addition to the regional studies of witchcraft in early modern Europe, bringing important recent Polish-language research into contact with interpretations and styles of inquiry currently being developed for other parts of Europe." --Journal of Ecclesiastical History
