Witch Trails at Islandmagee & Beyond - A Faculty Lecture

  • black box 18-22 Hill Street Belfast, BT1 United Kingdom (map)


Andrew Snedden is the author of ‘Possessed by the Devil, the Real History of the Islandmagee Witches’, ‘Witchcraft and Whigs’ & ‘Witchcraft and Magic in Ireland’. Using the Islandmagee Witch Trials of 1711 as a jumping off point Andrew will examine the dynamics of witchcraft belief and accusation in the early modern period across Ireland and Europe. We’ll examine the role of cunning-folk and popular magic in Irish society and attitudes of authorities to their activities.
