"Cameron's rigorous examination of the evasive subject of superstition makes Enchanted Europe essential reading for historians of medieval and early modern Europe...moreover serves as a timely reminder of the value of analyzing religion on its own terms."--IPreternature
"Enchanted Europe exposes a range of mental attitudes toward popular superstition, primarily from the points of view of churchmen attempting to sway one another in their arguments. ... Cameron's research proves extensive and profound." --Journal of American Folklore
