In witty, yet erudite fashion, Dr. Fudge directs the attention of his audience away from the standard historical narrative that focuses on influential persons, institutions, and ideas, and instead affords a wider vision of a medieval world in which a diversity of practices and beliefs flourished. Dr. Fudge brings to life the world of witches and their persecutors, locating them within the broader trends of the ways in which the “real” denizens of the Middle Ages, religious as well as lay, experienced and confronted the most troubling dimensions of existence, such as mortality and the uncertain pains and pleasures of the afterlife. His dramatic presentation will engage all who listen.”– Cary J. Nederman, Professor of Political Science, Texas A&M University“Professor Fudge is rightly regarded as one of the eminent scholars of late medieval religious heterodoxy, and has published extensively on Jan Hus and the nature of heresy. His work has helped to familiarize a generation with the controversies and turmoil of late medieval Europe.”– Stephen E. Lahey, Happold Professor of Religious Studies, Department of Classics and Religious Studies, University of Nebraska
