Situating Knowledge

  • Ane Ohrvik
Chapter
Part of the Palgrave Historical Studies in Witchcraft and Magic book series (PHSWM)

Abstract

Certain paratexts place the Black Books in time and space and in connection with material features, which serves to position the knowledge in the books in a symbolic landscape. Chapter 6 looks at how the knowledge is situated through different narratives about its origin. These narratives are represented by peritexts and epitexts alike, they illustrate the reciprocal relationship between the inside and the outside of the Black Books and point towards the ‘life’ these books had outside a strictly literary framework. The elements situating the books point towards a specific view of knowledge where the boundaries between past and present are highlighted and identified. In this process a unique biography of the Black Book and its knowledge is created.
