Postgraduate summer course “Witchcraft Across Classical, Medieval, and Early-Modern Cultures in Europe: Researching and Teaching a Long-Term Historical Issue”

  • at Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary, July 20 – July 25, 2021

This course aims to lay out the rise and downturn of witch-beliefs in medieval and early modern Europe, tracing the multifaceted roots leading to their construction, from the Classical Greek and Roman literary traditions, to medieval lore and popular beliefs, up to the outburst of the “witch-craze” in early modern Europe. Particular emphasis will be given to the analysis of primary sources, the discussion of modern methodological approaches, and the instruments and places for research.
