Summary

This is a survey of the witch persecution in Ireland, as well as a wide array of other paranormal events such as poltergeists, ghosts, apparitions, and even an early UFO account. Very listenable, yet well documented, this book has extensive and fascinating quotes from historical source documents.

"Seymour proposes that the witch-craze was more muted in Ireland than elsewhere in Europe. Relatively speaking, there appear to have been fewer cases in Ireland. This doesn't mean that the consequences were any less harsh for the accused. In these texts, we can see how people exhibiting what we would today consider schizophrenic or senile behavior were vulnerable to being accused of witchcraft." (J.B. Hare, British classicist and philosopher)
