profilesin_93147

 This paper asks you to read the assigned segments of Peter A. Morton’s The Trial of Tempel Anneke: Records of a Witchcraft Trial in Brunswick, Germany, 1663. This is a transcript of a witchcraft trial and you must take these transcripts (primary documents) and use them to answer ONE of the following three questions in a thoughtful essay. Be sure to use examples from the book and have an argument.


  • 1. What does this trial show about attitudes towards witchcraft in Early Modern Europe? 

  • 2. What does this trial reveal about everyday life in 1663?

  

  • 3. You tell the story – using footnotes to show your evidence – of what happened. From whose viewpoint would you tell it? What would you highlight? You must include a paragraph explaining how your choices highlight the historical points you are trying to make.

  

* This is 4-5 pages essay, double space. 

* I have uploaded the essay requirement & the PDF of the book. 

  Please see attachments.


  • Make sure you provide a clear thesis statement in      your introduction.  A thesis  should be followed by a sentence      briefly summarizing how you intend to prove it.  


  • You should aim for at least three specific      examples to use as evidence for your argument. 


  • You must cite your sources, whether it is a      paraphrase or a direct quote.   


  • Your conclusion will recapitulate the main points      of the essay and your thesis.
