Raising Spirits by Jonathan Barry Raising Spirits, Hardback (November 2013)

Despite supernatural scepticism, stories about spirits were regularly printed and shared throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. This case-study in the transmission of a single story (of a young gunsmith near Bristol conjuring spirits, leading to his early death) reveals both how and why successive generations found meaning in such accounts.

Witchcraft and Demonology in South-West England, 1640-1789 by Jonathan Barry Witchcraft and Demonology in South-West England, 1640-1789, Hardback (December 2011)

Using south-western England as a focus for considering the continued place of witchcraft and demonology in provincial culture in the period between the English and French revolutions, Barry shows how witch-beliefs were intricately woven into the fabric of daily life, even at a time when they arguably ceased to be of interest to the educated.
