Deborah Hyde

What's the talk about?

 The werewolf is a common horror motif, but what did people during the witch-hunt of sixteenth and seventeenth century Europe really mean when they accused someone of 'lycanthropy'? An evening discussing films, history and analysis at which we will found out who is worse - man or beast.

Deborah Hyde blogs on ‘Superstition, Religion and Being Human’ as ‘Jourdemayne’, which is the name of a lady whose knowledge of dark matters gained her friendship of the powerful, but she was burned at the stake in 1441. Deborah is editor of 'The Skeptic' magazine and was our speaker last year on 'Demons and Nightmares', the folklore of the macabre.
