1913. At the outset the plan and scope of this book must be made clear. It will be noticed that the belief in fairies and suchlike beings is hardly touched upon at all, except in those instances where fairy lore and witchcraft become inextricably blended. When did witchcraft make its appearance in Ireland, and what was its progress therein? It seems probable that this belief, together with certain aspects of fairy lore previously unknown to the Irish, and ideas relative to milk and butter magic, may in the main be counted as results of the Anglo-Norman invasion, though it is possible that an earlier installment of these came in with the Scandinavians.

Review: Irish Witchcraft and Demonology

Användarrecension  - Marianmcclenaghan - Goodreads

A very informative book. The writing is difficult to understand but this is due to the time period it was written. Do not let this put you off, the stories about witchcraft and the supernatural in Ireland are haunting and will stay with me forever. Läs hela recensionen
