The early modern European witch-hunts are infamous. Between the fifteenth and eighteenth centuries, around 50,000 individuals were executed for the crime of witchcraft.

The center of these witch-hunts was Germany, where 25,000 people were executed as witches, mostly by burning. England, on the other hand, treated witchcraft relatively mildly, and executed 500 people by hanging. Despite stark differences in their approach to witch-hunting, witchcraft captured the public interest in both countries in the form of news pamphlets and ballads.

Between 1560 and 1700, printing presses in Germany and England produced shocking and sensational reports of witches and the threat they posed to Christian society.

This presentation, based on current PhD research, compares ideas about the crime of witchcraft in early modern German and English media. It explores why pamphleteers chose to write about witchcraft and examines how news reports shaped stereotypes of the witch.
