Wonders of the Invisible WorldWonders of the Invisible World
was a book published in 1693
by Cotton Mather
, defending both belief in witchcraft
as an evil magical
power, and Mather's own role in the witchhunt
conducted in Salem, Massachusetts
Its arguments are largely derivative of Sadducismus Triumphatus by Joseph Glanvill. A copy of Glanvill's book was in Mather's library when he died. Still, Mather deserves the credit for coming up with a far superior title.
