VMs: The Night Battles...?
Has anyone here read "The Night Battles: Witchcraft and Agrarian Cults in
the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries." by Carlo Ginzburg. Translated by
John and Anne Tedeschi. Baltimore, Maryland: The John Hopkins University
Press, 1992. Paperback, 210 pages. ISBN 0-8018-4386-3. ?
It was originally published in Italy as "I Benandanti: Stregoneria e culti
agrari tra Cinquecento e Seicento", in 1966.
There's a fair-sized review of it here (if you scroll down a bit):-
Hmmm: fennel versus sorghum... an interesting take on good vs bad? :-)
