This week’s talk: Delineations of Devilry: Defining Demons and Witches 1500-1800
Just in time for Halloween, join us for a conversation with curator Rachel Lavenda about witches, demons, and spirits, and the line between what magic practices were “acceptable” and which were considered criminal in their time. From grimoires to demonologies, impassioned discourses to philosophical treatises, we’ll discuss how the debate about witchcraft and devils has changed and endured across the centuries.
