The Supernatural in Early Modern Scotland (Paperback)
This book is a collection of chapters on supernatural belief and practice in Scotland between 1500 and 1800. It deals with elite culture - from political prophecy to astrology, theology and poetic visions. And it deals with popular culture - from trances and visionary encounters with ghosts and fairies, to folkloric angels and Second Sight.
