These essays present an examination of the events and crises which generated fear in early-modern societies. They offer examples of fear, and popular responses to it. From the natural threats of fire, flood and plague to the theoretical traumas of death and the afterlife, this volume covers the panoply of personal and communal tragedies which tormented, tortured and terrified the early-modern world.
