My thesis explores the role of practical or cunning magic in medieval and early modern English society. Spanning the years from c. 1350 to c. 1650, I research how magic was practised and by whom, whether this changed over the period, and how magical practice was affected by perspectives on gender. I also explore the extent to which magic was tolerated at different social strata, from the employment of village cunning folk to magic's use at the English royal court.
