In The Discovery of Witches, Matthew Hopkins - the Witch Finder General of England during the early 1600s - details the process by which he found and captured suspected witches. Hopkins' treatise is comprised of answers to various queries he had received by members of the public curious about his investigatory techniques in finding witches. This book answers a total of fourteen queries, with replies ranging from a few sentences to a few paragraphs in length. The book is an illustrative portrayal of a society fervently given to superstitions about the powers of witchcraft. At three hundred women killed, the efforts of Hopkins and his assistant John Stearne were prolific. Accorded status, Hopkins encountered opposition to his witch finding. That his 'investigations' required scant evidence to secure death sentences dismayed figures in the Church of England. Today, historians judge Hopkins as an opportunist who took advantage of unfounded suspicions to advance his own fame.

Un manuscrito embrujado, una historia de amor prohibida, una protagonista que reniega de sus or�genes... Primera entrega de la trilog�a �El descubrimiento de las brujas�. En el coraz�n de la Biblioteca Bodleiana de Oxford, la apasionada historiadora Diana Bishop se topa en medio de sus investigaciones con el manuscrito identificado como Ashmole 782. Descendiente de un antiguo linaje de brujas, Diana intuye que el manuscrito est� relacionado de alguna manera con la magia, pero no quiere tener nada que ver con la brujer�a. Y despu�s de tomar algunas notas sobre sus curiosos dibujos, lo devuelve sin perder m�s tiempo a las estanter�as. Lo que Diana no sabe es que se trata de un manuscrito alqu�mico que ha estado perdido durante siglos y cuyo descubrimiento ha desencadenado que hordas de daimones, vampiros y brujas salgan a la luz de las salas de lectura de la Biblioteca. Una de esas criaturas es Matthew Clairmont, un enigm�tico genetista, amante del buen vino y vampiro milenario, cuya alianza con Diana se har� progresivamente m�s �ntima y poco a poco surgir� entre ambos una relaci�n que har� tambalear los tab�es asentados desde hace tiempo en un mundo secreto y encantado. La teor�a de la evoluci�n de Darwin no contempl� todos los seres que habitan la Tierra, pero Deborah Harkness lo ha hecho en esta emocionante e ingeniosa novela. Desde Oxford a Nueva York, y de aqu� a Francia, la magia, la alquimia y la ciencia nos desvelan sus verdaderos v�nculos en el libro definitivo sobre la brujer�a y sus poderes. Rese�a: �Una original fantas�a con toda la magia de Harry Potter o Crep�sculo...

Historically, what do you see as the relationship between science and religion or mysticism? In college, I had a wonderful professor who taught a class on these subjects. To kick off the class, he asked us, 'How do you know what you think you know?' I've spent the last quarter century trying to answer that question. Because the world is a mysterious place and our relationship to it is not always clear, people have often turned to science, faith, and magic for answers. They help people find responses to the questions of, who am I and why am I here? Diana is an appealing heroine, determined, accomplished, and yet aware of her own weaknesses. In what ways, if any, does Diana reflect your own experience or personality? There are some similarities - Diana is also a historian of science, also interested in the history of alchemy, and shares some of my passions (including television cooking programs, tea, and rowing). Really, all the characters have some element of me in them. I think that's how authors create imaginary people who nevertheless feel real. The rest of Diana's character comes from a combination of qualities I admire in others, wish fulfilment, and my completion of the following statement: 'Wouldn't it be great if a heroine in a book was . . .
