One on 1 with Malcolm Gaskill

“There should be reason and rationality in religion as well as in society more generally.”

In this One on 1 interview (Halloween edition!), we are joined by historian Malcolm Gaskill. Gaskill is an Emeritus Professor of Early Modern History at the University of East Anglia, specializing in the social and cultural history of seventeenth-century trans-Atlantic culture, particularly the history of witchcraft. Gaskill discusses his new book, The Ruin of All Witches: Life and Death in the New World, the story of a witch-panic in a New England frontier community.
