The American Library Association’s (ALA) Digital Library of the Week is the Cornell University Library Witchcraft Collection, described by ALA as documenting “the earliest and the latest manifestations of the belief in witchcraft as well as its geographical boundaries, and elaborates this history with works on canon law, the Inquisition, torture, demonology, trial testimony, and narratives. Most importantly, the collection focuses on witchcraft not as folklore or anthropology, but as theology and as religious heresy.” Within the site is a great image collection, The Fantastic in Art and Fiction, also from Cornell.
