The subject of witchcraft within England has raised many different questions and theories: from the "refused charity" hypothesis with "social tensions thrown up by the transition from personal to institutional charity" as argued by MacFarlane/Thomas to the extreme feminist argument of a "complex attack by male-dominated authority on dependent or independent women. This essay and supporting database has used evidence from the Assize trials and the pamphlets to study the surmise that witchcraft was a form of female power. Through looking at the pamphlets (whilst appreciating their bias and the possibility that they were not eye-witness accounts), it can be seen that many of the accused witches were living outside the "norms" of their society.

The English witchcraft trails of the sixteenth and seventeenth century are a very complex topic to study. It is hoped that this essay and accompanying database has given realistic consideration to the continuing debate.
