“Orthodoxy versus Radicalism: Authorial Agenda in Two English Renaissance Witchcraft Texts”

Dorrington, Jesse

Hortulus, Vol. 1, (2008)

Abstract

This article focuses on two early modern English witchcraft texts, The Examination and Confession of Certaine Wytches (1566) and William Perkins’ A Discourse of the Damned Art of Witchcraft (1608) and argues that despite their differences of genre, tone and radicalness these works reveal a shared authorial agenda and persuasive strategy. The writer contends that this shared underlying intent revolves around the elevation of Protestantism and the uniting of society within specific ideological camps.
