Google it! I typed "Elizabethan Witchcraft", and here's the 1st suggestion: http://www.elizabethan-era.org.uk/eliza ... itches.htm
You'll find there's not many people on this forum who'd have done a project like this, we're more likely to know about Elizabethan clothing, food or music etc. Withcraft is a bit on the sidelines of our hobby (not that it doesn't get represented of course!)

Vidur, what is it you're specifically interested in?

And you might want to post this in the 1485-1603 section, which is the Elizabethan area.

Or even quicker, goto google or dogpile.com and search for

"elizabethan times" +witchcraft -pdf

If a school project, it would be quicker than hoping alan and the rest of the elizabethan specialists can think of something

Best of luck with your search and maybe if you can find something that helps you to get the grades you want, you can post back in this thread so that other youngsters can learn as well ?

If you have something to say, say it.

I just did, you even managed to quote it, congratulations am so pleased for you :)

Vidur, using a search engine with the right phrase and using subcommands like -stuff u not want and +stuff you do want can refine the search engine results.

Search engines will find sites that some of the very knowledgeable people here might not know of, but if they know of sites in addition, it is worth using both. But people tend to be slower at replies, while search engines are instant.

There have been cases of children coming here for advice and waiting days for someone to see and reply to the request, hence the suggestion for search engines. www.dogpile.com is a search engine btw :)

searching for
"elizabethan times" +witchcraft -pdf

gives you all the pages that are not an acrobat pdf document for instance

"elizabethan" +witchcraft -pdf Results 1 - 100 of about 92,000 maybe too many
"elizabethan" +witchcraft -pdf -Renaissance -amazon -book
Results 1 - 100 of about 9,200

so that list looks very interesting

Hope you get the idea :)

Wikipedia has a history of the Witchcraft Acts in England, and it looks like Daemonologie (a work written by James IV of Scotland, later James I of England) is also online.

(Also some useful-looking books in an article on James Morrow's top ten books on witch persecutions).

That'd be James VI of Scotland. James IV also ended his days in England it is true but in a slightly different fashion.

Whoops; you're right. Sorry about that. I do get the Jameses, Marys, etc. mixed up right around then ...

Karen, you should try writing essays on 15th century Scotland. All's going well until you get to the one about comparing the different James's!
