Just in time for Halloween, on Tuesday, October 30 at 7:00 pm at Bernardsville Public Library, Prof. Deborah Hoeflinger will discuss witchcraft from the 1600s, when people were really chasing after witches and burning them at the stake, to today’s beliefs. She’ll talk about what caused people to believe in witches, what kind of people were accused of being witches, how they were treated, and what caused the witch craze to subside. From 1450 to 1750, thousands of people were tried as witches. In times when bad luck and illness had no obvious cause, it was convenient to blame witches, and catastrophic events like the Black Death fueled hysteria because there was no satisfactory explanation of the cause at the time. Even today, there are parts of the world where people still believe in witchcraft and hunt down anyone suspected of participating in it. Deborah Hoeflinger is an adjunct professor of History at County College of Morris. She holds a B.A. in Social Science from Montclair State University as well as a Master's Degree in Political Science and one in Reading Education from the same school. She is retired from Butler High School where she taught History for over 30
