Book Announcement: Early Modern Prophecies in Transnational, National and Regional Contexts

Newly published in Brill’s Studies in Intellectual History is the 3-volume Early Modern Prophecies in Transnational, National and Regional Contexts, edited by Lionel Laborie and Ariel Hessayon.

In this important collection of primary sources, Lionel Laborie and Ariel Hessayon bring together a huge range of vital sources for the study of prophecy in the early modern world. This meticulously edited 3-volume set includes rare material and fascinating manuscripts published in English for the first time. Volumes are organised geographically, each with its own introduction by a world-renowned expert. Together with their respective contributors, they show how prophecies circulated widely throughout this period at all levels of society. Indeed, they often emerged in times of crisis and were delivered as warnings as well as signals of hope. Moreover, they were constantly adapted and translated to suit ever changing contexts – including those for which they had not been originally intended.
