Witches and Monsters and Banshees, oh my!

For this special Halloween edition of the Library Treasures Video Series, we take a look at several of our spookiest items covering Witches and Demons, Monsters, and Banshees.

We look at several very special items like the Formicarius, the second-ever printed work to describe witchcraft, which characterized the hysteria around witches and witch hunts throughout early modern Europe.

Irish Wonders, on the other hand, a much newer item dating to 1888, reviews popular folklore found throughout Ireland, claiming to be told by locals throughout the country – find out more from our blogpost https://bit.ly/3CiGLZv.

A big thanks to our colleague for her research and words we used in the script.
