The exhibition “The World Bewitch’d” explores the origins and spread of the belief in witchcraft across Europe. It features rare and unique books and documents—from 15th-century witch hunting manuals to 20th-century movie posters—and it examines themes such as gendered stereotypes, belief in night flying, shapeshifting, demonic pacts, and the witch epidemics that resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands. "The World Bewitch’d” offers a rare glimpse of the treasures of the Cornell Witchcraft Collection, established by Cornell University’s first president, Andrew Dickson White, and now the largest in North America with more than 3,000 items.
The exhibition is on view from October 31, 2017 to August 31, 2018, in the Hirshland Exhibition Gallery, open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Click on "see more dates" at the top for more information, or check the library hours website for updates and Saturday hours: https://www.library.cornell.edu/libraries.
This exhibition is funded through the generous support of the Stephen E. ’58 MBA ’59 and Evalyn Edwards ’60 Milman Exhibition Fund.
