(Saducismus Triumphatus)


In the book “Saducismus Triumphatus” by Joseph Glanvill, published in 1681, numerous accounts of witch-trials are retold, including that of Elizabeth Style, at Taunton in 1664. She apparently confessed to gathering with her associates at night in the woods, where they would feast with the devil, and baptise “pictures in wax”, wax dolls or poppets, with the names of those they wished to harm. They would then stick them with thorns.
