The Witchcraft Craze

Monday, October 29, 2018

Join Deborah Hoeflinger as she describes how during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries about 60,000 people in Europe and in the American colonies were executed for being witches. In this program, we will explore several aspects of the craze including the causes, the people who were accused, the end of the craze and its effects on society. We will also look at modern day instances of witch hunting and the efforts to eradicate the practice.
