History of Evil in the Early Modern Age

1450–1700 CE

«<p>This excellent collection provides a road map for those interested in studying the concept of evil in early modern culture. Evil for whom, one might ask? Evil according to what creed, and in what circumstance? Such questions animate the book’s principal aim, which is to show the period’s wide variety of perspectives on the subject, from the intensely theological to the profoundly secular, from the Devil to Thomas Hobbes. The volume is easy to recommend for its depth and vitality, and—too—because the editors allow room for the possibility that evil is not solely a historical phenomenon. <strong>Ryan Stark</strong>, <em>Corban University, USA</em></p>»

The third volume of The History of Evil encompasses the early modern era from 1450-1700. This revolutionary period exhibited immense change in both secular knowledge and sacred understanding. It saw the fall of Constantinople and the rise of religious violence, the burning of witches and the drowning of Anabaptists, the ill treatment of indigenous peoples from Africa to the Americas, the reframing of formal authorities in religion, philosophy, and science, and it produced profound reflection on good and evil in the genius of Shakespeare, Milton, Bacon, Teresa of Avila, and the Cambridge Platonists.

This superb treatment of the history of evil during a formative period of the early modern era will appeal to those with interests in philosophy, theology, social and political history, and the history of ideas.
