This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the disavowal of witchcraft belief in England during the 18th century. The analysis reveals that in both England and France, witchcraft theory did not have to be radically rejected in order to secure an end to the trials and that the most effective panacea was caution. This chapter also mentions witchcraft belief and witch-hunting in other European countries including Germany and Spain.
