    Abstract:
    This module will deal with the study of a few texts written in Medieval and Early Modern Europe related to Witchcraft, Heresy and Inquisition. The main purpose of this course is to consider how some patterns and stereotypes in the European cultural history of the past use to appear also in our current times. The outline below gives the general parameters of the material to be covered, indicating texts and secondary sources that students are required to read each week. Articles and texts for this course will be uploaded to Moodle by your tutor. There is also a suggested movie for each one of the texts / historical periods under study, as well as a Digital Humanities tool that should be used in order to improve your research skills. Students will engage in the study of the socio-historical events and features of European society from the 14th to the 17th centuries, as well as the literary mechanisms utilised by authors of each one of the texts under study. It is essential to understand the dynamic of these events in order to have a better understanding of the texts we shall read during this course.
