Beschrijving The Past and Present Book Series: Spectralities in the Renaissance

Spectrality in the 16th and 17th Centuries explores the history of the idea of ghosts in early modern Europe, moving away from thinking of them as a purely religious phenomenon, but as something rooted in cultural traditions, particularly in times of violence, where the living and the dead were in close proximity. Callard focuses on ancien regime France, to explore how the notion of ghosts and the supernatural played a part in France's early modern
past, in such disparate areas as politics, law, natural philosophy, and the cultural and emotional history of everyday life.
