Abstract

Did the phenomenon of the belief in the existence of witchcraft inspired by the Devil and the witch-hunt that was unleashed in the European societies of the Modern Ages conclude or continue throughout the 18th century? Newly discovered documentation demonstrates that far from disappearing, it continued. This study is a first attempt to determine how that curious historical episode persisted in a Europe that termed itself as "illustrated" and the forms to which the accusations and the judicial treatment thereof evolved. Based on the Basque Country and a series of trials related in one way or another with this issue - dated between 1704 and 1839 - it includes a description of the complex and assorted response given to that interesting - and yet scarcely known - historical phenomenon.
