Transcript of Daemonologie
King James VI of Scotland, later
King James I of England
James VI considered himself as an expert on witchcraft
The king had a morbid fear of violent death
No one in scotland showed interest in witches prior to 1590, and there was no punishment for witchcraft
Witch hunting began in 1590 in scotland
300 witches were accused to plot the murder of James
the king feared most of all treason
Witches found guilty were executed
James became interested in witches in 1589
He went for a trip to Denmark (where witches were hunted) to meet his future wife. When he came back to Scotland, his ship got caught in a massive storm and one ship got lost. Witches were blamed of trying to murder the king.
This was the triggering event leading to witch hunting in Scotland
In 1597, King James wrote "Daemononelogie", an 80 pages book about his view on witchcraft.
The book was about magic, sorcery, witchcraft, spirits, and ghosts.
