Whoo-hoo:  our project has received funding from the QEP-Mellon undergraduate research grant administered by the Charles Center!  We’ll be in Pamplona over Spring Break 2009.   Amanda, Eric, and Kim have worked very hard at paleography and now are not only sight-reading right off the folio, but sometimes correcting my transcriptions :).  They are about to finish up a difficult witchcraft confession and revocation from 1611, and next will be moving to witchcraft trials held before Navarre’s royal court in the 1570s.   I expect they’ll see interesting differences in legal procedures and punishments.  We’re awaiting the catalogue to the Archivo General de Navarra from the Library of Congress, so we can begin to decide which sources each of them will tackle in Pamplona.
