Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Witchcraft, Gender and Society in Early Modern Germany contains the table of contents, a list of tables, maps and illustrations, acknowledgements, abbreviations and introduction. The book reconstructs the dynamics of witch prosecution in the prince-bishopric of Eichstätt and consequently the ways in which the suspects constructed convincing narratives of witchcraft activity. It also describes the types of people who were arrested for witchcraft in the principality. The book examines in detail the networks of association which are to be found in the witch interrogations and confirmed in prosopographical research.

Keywords: Early Modern Germany; Eichstätt; Witchcraft
