The brief biographies of various participants are excellent, and the timeline of events very helpful!from the site: "This site was created by the Danvers Archival Center, the local history, rare book and manuscript department of the Peabody Institute Library of Danvers, Massachusetts, with the support of the Electronic Text Center at the University of Virginia.This site is so chock full of transcripts of the primary sources -- depositions, warrants, letters, petitions -- you really have to go and explore it for yourself!There are images, including portraits of Samuel Sewall, William Stoughton, William Phips, and Cotton Mather.You can actually look at the image of Samuel Parris's handwritten transcription of the examination of Martha Corey! A small part of the site is still unavailable to the public because the holder(s) of some documents have not yet given the University of Virginia permission to do so, but the number of restricted manuscripts is very low.Some of the images are of better quality than others -- for instance, the images of the documents held at the Peabody-Essex Museum is taken from older black-and-white microfilm, but the new full-color digital photographs of the manuscripts at the Boston Public Library are absolutely luscious, with all the detail of the paper and ink.
It is in two parts: an interactive database, and supporting web pages.Thumbs up to the folks at Maddox Interactive for this contribution to the Internet! (prices as of 1/1/04), you can access a LOT of excellent book-length material as well as articles on-line about the Salem witch-hunt.Questia is "the world's largest online library of over 47,000 books and 375,000 journal, magazine and newspaper articles", -- and is a commercial site. This site is unlike any of the other materials I've found on-line: it's a hypertext, multimedia account, casting you, the reader, as one of the accused, and links to a discussion 'forum' and a chance to ask their expert questions!Should encourage you to buy the book itself -- a must-hove on the bookshelf of anyone interested in witchcraft accusations in that period.The Malleus Maleficarum (The Witch Hammer) was first published in 1486, and was undoubtedly known to the witch-hunters in Salem.
