Confessing to ´´familiarity with the devils´´, Mary Johnson, a servant, was executed by Connecticut officials in 1648. A wealthy Boston widow, Ann Hibbens, was hanged in 1656 for casting spells on her neighbors. The case of Ann Cole, who was ´´taken with very strange Fits´´, fueled an outbreak of witchcraft accusations in Hartford a generation before the notorious events at Salem. More than 300 years later, the question ´´Why?´´ still haunts us. Why were these and other women likely witches - vulnerable to accusations of witchcraft and possession? Carol F. Karlsen reveals the social construction of witchcraft in 17th-century New England and illuminates the larger contours of gender relations in that society. 1. Language: English.
