The Life & Times of Dr. John Webster (1610–1682)

Talk by Rev. Andy Froud, Vicar of Clitheroe St Mary Magdalene’s Church on Dr Webster

Dr. Webster was a cleric, astrologer and student of alchemy but is best known locally, especially following the Pendle Witch trials of 1612, for his book, “The Displaying of Supposed Witchcraft” published in 1677 in which he denounced the existence of witchcraft as anything but superstition. St. Mary’s church alongside contains a very interesting brass plaque bearing his epitaph which is thought to have been written by Webster himself
