What's the talk about?

The werewolf is an enduring motif. Though there are many good werewolves in folkore, the prevalent type is the ravaging, insatiable beast. The werewolf so often stands for the heart of darkness of the human soul. This talk will explore how the motif was used during one of Europe's darkest eras - the Great Witch Hunt of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
