dc.description Harvey, John, The Appearance of Evil: Apparitions of Spirits in Wales (University of Wales Press, 2003) en
dc.description.abstract 'A Relation of Apparitions' is a repository of supernatural folklore which shows how the 18th century viewed the spirit world and the question of belief. This is a modernized version of Jones's text, including a transcript of further holograph material, as well as a detailed editor's introduction. Edmund Jones (1702-1793) was a Calvinist Independent Minister, born at Penllwyn in Monmouthshire. He wrote several works on doctrine, as well as three collections of material on apparitions, of which 'A Relation of Apparitions' (1780) is the third. His work reacts against the excesses of 18th-century empiricist thought by asserting a biblical view of the transcendent nature of reality. 'A Relation of Apparitions' is a repository of supernatural folklore which shows how the 18th century viewed both the spirit world and the question of belief. This is a modernized, edited and re-organized version of Jones's text, including a transcript of further holograph material, as well as a detailed editor's introduction. en
