    Default Scottish Witchcraft Book published Online

    The pages of a 350-year-old book used to record the names of those accused of witchcraft in Scotland have been published online at the Ancestry website:
    https://www.ancestry.co.uk/?s_kwcid=...d+Search+Brand

    The Names of Witches in Scotland, 1658 collection, was drawn up during a time when the persecution of supposed witches was rife.

    The book also lists the towns where the accused lived and notes of confession.

    The outbreak of witch-hunting in the years 1658-1662, the period in which the list of names was created, is generally seen to represent the high water mark of persecution of accused witches in Scotland.

    In many cases, the victims were healers, part of a tradition of folk medicine. Their treatments sometimes helped poor communities but accusations of witchcraft could crop up if they did not work.

    I do not agree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

    Won't let me see the Article until I Register with their Website.

    Just like that other Website that would not let me Post even after I Registered.

    That is a shame, Kino, as it is an interesting book.

    It was last Fall when Bill Posted something about Fairy Forts being Destroyed which put me onto the Ancient-Origins Website.

    They would not let me access anything unless I Registered onto their Website.

    That is fairly normal these days - particularly for specialist information.
