The Witch Trials

To be preceded by the AGM

U3A in Ludlow

Monday 25 March at 11:00am
Coffee at 10:30am

Ludlow Mascall Centre

From 1324 to 1783, some scholars suggest nearly 200,000 trials of witches took place in Europe, with around 50,000 executions. Others estimate anything up to one million were tried. Who were these unfortunate people and what brought them to their grim end? Our vice-chairman, Robert Hodge, a historian, will talk about the witch trials in England and throughout Europe, how they came about and how they ended – whilst challenging some of the perceptions of ‘witches’ and their fate.

Non-members are always welcome to come to a U3A meeting as a visitor to find out more about U3A in Ludlow.
