Witchcraft, Witch-Hunting, and Politics in Early Modern England by Peter Elmer Witchcraft, Witch-Hunting, and Politics in Early Modern England, Hardback (January 2016)

An original overview of witchcraft and witch-hunting in early modern England, from the first witch trials early in Elizabeth I's reign to the repeal of the Witchcraft Statute in 1736, demonstrating how learned discussion of witchcraft, as well as the trials of those suspected of the crime, were shaped by religious and political imperatives.

Miraculous Conformist by Peter Elmer Miraculous Conformist, Hardback (December 2012)

Tells the compelling story of Irish healer Valentine Greatrakes and outlines his place in the history of seventeenth-century Britain. Reveals a fascinating account of his engagement with important events of the period, including the Irish Rebellion of 1641, the English civil wars, the Cromwellian Conquest of Ireland, and the Restoration of 1660.

Health, Disease and Society in Europe, 1500-1800 by Peter Elmer Health, Disease and Society in Europe, 1500-1800, Paperback (December 2003)

The period from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment constitutes a vital phase in the history of European medicine. This volume contains a selection of classical writing and up-to-date research in the field, and extracts from contemporary sources.

Challenges to Authority by Peter Elmer Challenges to Authority, Paperback (June 2000)

The evolution and reception of the Renaissance was mediated by, amongst other influences: the Protestant Reformation; the development of science or natural philosophy; and an interest in witchcraft and demonology. These are evaluated alongside the influence of Montaigne's "Essays".
