520    This book addresses magical ideas and practices in early 
       modern Norway. It examines a large corpus of Norwegian 
       manuscripts from 1650-1850 commonly called Black Books 
       which contained a mixture of recipes on medicine, magic, 
       and art. Ane Ohrvik assesses the Black Books from the 
       vantage point of those who wrote the manuscripts and thus 
       offers an original study of how early modern magical 
       practitioners presented their ideas and saw their 
       practices. The book show how the writers viewed magic and 
       medicine both as practical and sacred art and as knowledge
       worth protecting through encoding the text. The study of 
       the Black Books illuminates how ordinary people in Norway 
       conceptualized magic as valuable and useful knowledge 
       worth of collecting and saving despite the ongoing 
       witchcraft prosecutions targeting the very same ideas and 
       practices as the books promoted. Medicine, Magic and Art 
       in Early Modern Norway is essential for those looking to 
       advance their studies in magical beliefs and practices in 
       early modern Europe as well as those interested in 
       witchcraft studies, book history, and the history of
