Summary

The prevalent worldview of early modern England, clearly shaped by Protestantism, dismissed magical belief as an ideological delusion inherent to Catholicism. That same Protestantism encouraged a strong sense of individualism, through which a new masculinity found key expression. Ian McAdam's innovative study examines these issues and asks: why, then, did magical self-empowerment retain such a hold on the artistic and cultural imagination of early modern English society?
