    Keeping in mind that 'our modern compartmentalisation of religion, magic, and science had not yet taken place', Maxwell-Stuart traces the history of witches and the attempts to eradicate them, from the 13th century to the repeal of the Witchcraft Act in 1735. He also aims to describe witches in the context of their lives rather than the suspicions of the Church, altering our view of who the witches were and why people employed them, but also tried to suppress them.
