Irish Witch Trials with Andrew Sneddon
This episode on Irish witch trial history takes a close look at the 1711 mass witch trial in Islandmagee through an illuminating conversation with Dr, Andrew Sneddon of Ulster University. We discuss what took place and learn about why there may have been fewer witch trials in Ireland than in other countries during the early modern period. We cover critical aspects of the witchcraft accusations, like demonic obsession and possession, and address the similarities between Islandmagee and witchcraft accusations in Salem and other New England witch trials. Dr Sneddon and his colleagues have launched a historic multimedia Islandmagee witch trial history commemoration project that opens September 9 in Ireland. Find out what you can experience in person and what is available to experience online.
