About this product
- DescriptionAn exploration of why women were singled out as witches in 15th-century in Germany. It examines the connections between three central developments at this time: a shift in gender roles for women; the rise of a new urban ideal of femininity; and the witch hunts that were sweeping across Europe.
- Author BiographyUntil her accidental death in 1992, SIGRID BRAUNER was assistant professor of German literature at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Her book was edited for publication by her friend ROBERT H. BROWN, author of Nature's Hidden Terror: Violent Nature Imagery in Eighteenth-Century Germany.
