Popular Piety and "The Appearance of a Spirit" in 1628
Leonarde's Ghost by Kathryn A. Edwards
Book DescriptionHuguette Roy is a bedridden, pregnant woman living in early modern Franche-Comte when a mysterious apparition arrives at her bedside in 1628. Not only afflicted by her physical ailments but also a deathly fear of demonic influences, Huguette is faced with weeks of daily appearances from the ethereal chambermaid visible solely to her eyes. Surrounded by a barrage of non-believers and questioning religious orders, Huguette must conquer her own uncertainty and help the mystical being achieve her fate. Set during a time when visionaries were forcefully prosecuted, the account was stored away in a small, French library. Now translators Edwards and Sutch introduce this primary source and place it in its historical, geographical, political, and religious contexts.

While pre-modern Europe is often seen as having an 'enchanted' or 'magical' worldview, the full implications of such labels remain inconsistently explored. This collection offers one method of demystifying this world of everyday magic.
