Could Plymouth have ever been Salem? Belief in witchcraft was part of the 17th century worldview of the Pilgrims, and there were accusations of witchcraft in early Plymouth. Curtin describes the English folklore and traditions that shaped New England witch trials, and examines the stories of Plymouth’s accused witches to suggest how the Pilgrim settlement avoided the hysteria that later enflamed Massachusetts Bay.
