Chapter Summary

This section discusses the occupations of suspected witches or their households. The primary occupational category used in the collation of the data was the suspect's own stated occupation. The secondary category, where a primary one was not given, was the suspect's current or last husband's council position or occupation. The data for the number of men in each trade has been taken from Buchner. The section presents the table containing the number of witch-suspects from each occupational group in Eichstätt and the number of tradesmen recorded over the period 1589-1618.

Keywords: Eichstätt; households; occupational category; suspected witches
