The discoverie of witchcraft by Reginald Scot( Book )

12 editions published between 1930 and 2015 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A partially skeptical book published by the English gentleman Reginald Scot in 1584, intended as an exposé of medieval witchcraft. It contains a small section intended to show how the public was fooled by charlatans, which is considered the first published material on "magic" trickery. Scot believed that the prosecution of those accused of witchcraft was irrational and un-Christian, and he held the Roman Church responsible. He set himself to prove that the belief in witchcraft and magic was rejected by reason and by religion, and that spiritualistic manifestations were willful impostures, or illusions due to mental disturbance in the observers. His aim was to prevent the persecution of poor, aged, and simple persons, who were popularly credited with being witches.--Adapted from en.wikipedia.org
