Summary:

Lives of Necromancers is perhaps one of the most thorough overviews of the lives and legends of both fictional and historic individuals associated with the magical arts. Godwin thoughtfully summarizes the histories and tales of mankind, from ancient Rome and Egypt to Eastern traditions all the way to the witchcraft trials of Europe and the new world. Godwin presents a fascinating overview of mankind's obsession with the magical arts and the impact that obsession has on the collective psyche.
