“It is clear that the history of the witch hunt from the 15th to the 17th centuries is part of the history of culture and the history of women and feminism,” said historian Agustí Alcoberro yesterday at the closing of the international congress The origins of the witch hunt in Europe. It started on Thursday at the University of Barcelona and yesterday it moved to Esterri d’Àneu, within the framework of the sixth centenary of the Ordinacions d’Àneu of 1624, the oldest law against witchcraft in Europe. Alcoberro highlighted the organization of this international congress, with the attendance of the best specialists in Europe and America in the history of witch-hunting. In this sense, he valued that “the phenomenon in Catalonia is less known, it now forms part of the global imaginary of witch-hunting.” Coordinated by the historian from Tremp Pau Castell, the congress had the support of the Consell Cultural de les Valls d’Àneu. Its president, Ferran Rella, highlighted the celebration of this meeting “in the epicentre of the oldest document against witchcraft written in Europe.” Rella described coordinating this event with the University of Barcelona as an “anniversary” because “we work to make culture a driving force for the revitalization of the territory.”
