Between the living and the dead : a perspective on witches and seers in the early modern age by Éva Pócs( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author, one of the most highly respected scholars of historical anthropology, has undertaken extensive research on folk beliefs related to communication with the supernatural sphere. In this book, she examines the systems of such communication known by early modern Hungarians, and the role these systems played in the everyday life of the village. New types of mediators are identified such as "the neighborhood witch," the healing witch, and the demons seen in dreams." "Representing a major contribution to the most up-to-date international research, Eva Pocs draws on significant East European material and literature not previously coordinated with that from the West. In so doing, she makes a valuable contribution to a subject that has recently attracted the attention of several leading scholars."--BOOK JACKET
