Prof. Anne Throckmorton


In a small German town, a young mother falls suddenly ill, and her family and neighbors watch helplessly as she dies in agonizing pain. Why did this healthy woman die? Duke University History Professor Tom Robisheaux gives a glimpse into the life of a woman at the center of a witch panic and the experiences of those caught up in a moral panic that threatened to engulf an entire society. This talk is part of R-MC’s five-part series about the European Reformation.  Free and open to the public.
