Magic, Witches & Devils at the John Rylands Library
Ghosts, witches, sorcerers and demons: our fascination with the
supernatural stretches back centuries. Experience how supernatural
forces shaped the lives of everyone from kings and queens to
clergymen and maidservants.
'Magic, Witches & Devils in the Early Modern World' reveals how magic, diabolical witchcraft, and ghostly encounters inspired fear and curiosity on an unprecedented scale between the 15th and 18th centuries. The exhibition illuminates the roots of our obsession with supernatural power and explores a world where the Devil was understood as a real and present danger in daily life.
