As early modern period continued, witch-hunts finally began to die out – but old beliefs persisted. This final session will explore the rise of reason in a changing society, and the legacy of the idea of witchcraft.

The session will include an introductory lecture, discussion of a document picked by Malcolm, and an extensive Q&A.

All attendees will receive a study pack to accompany each lecture, containing an original document picked by Malcolm to discuss with him in the Q&A.
