Robin Morgan, the well-known Second Wave feminist, decided to take on the Inquisition (the Medieval Inquisition, or the six-century-long Burning Time ), which was truly unexpected when it landed in Ireland in the 14th century. The Irish had happily been practicing both Catholicism and what is referred to in Morgan’s book as the Craft, or Wicca, for thousands of years, while the Church looked on indulgently. Then they were sent a bishop with a grudge and boom!, the whole country ends up plagued by religious strife for centuries  . But if you want to learn something, with a bit of fancy thrown in, this is your book. The Burning Time by Robin Morgan Melville House Publishing ISBN: 193363300X 300 pages.

This book is a real eye opener, especially since many characters depicted were in fact part of the persecuted from the "Burning Time". It was recommended to me by my nephew and while it started out a little slow, I really enjoyed it. The main character is compelling: a woman, a high priestess, a healer, a feminist of her time and an independent woman of means (because she is born into it, of course).

What can I say about the great Robin Morgan? She should be as familiar a name as other great feminist leaders like Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan for her immense contributions. First,about 2 years ago I was inspired by her radical essays from the book Going Too Far, then I read her "Sisterhood" anthologies, her book on the roots of terrorism, subscribed to Ms magazine in which she still does editorial work, got advice from her in Fighting Words: Combating the Religous Right, read an article which made me stand up and just yell, "Yes, I support Hilary and I'm not going to remain silent anymore!" with her recent essay "Goodbye to All This" about the media and Hilary. I also have to give her kudos for the great book of poetry she wrote called Monster...one of my favorite poems. So now, I've read a fiction book by her and once again, I felt such a connection to her brilliance, compassion, strength and love of women. I'm 28 and I swear I wish i had been involved in the movement with Robin. From this book, you will learn a fictionalized story of a REAL group of people who suffered the starts of the Inquistion in Ireland in the 1300's. The book focuses on 2 main ladies...one a noblewomen/ wiccan priestess and her serf/ surrogate daughter coming into conflict with one Archbishop whose hatred and fear of learned women as well as his greed for property is frightening. I won't ruin the ending but it is very suprising and empowering to all individuals who "fight the power". Too bad that during the 600 year "Burning Season" the church killed millions of people as witches, mainly women and girl children. From Robin's description of "witchcraft" it is nothing like the nonsense put into our heads. READ!
Hucama
Well written. Based on historical accounts, and well researched. Focused exclusively on Kyteler's alleged witch activities, hence the title of the book. I was expecting some discussion of her past and poisoning four husbands, but that was my assumption in buying the book. Enjoyed the ending very much.
Wymefw
Very satisfied with product quality and delivery; however, disappointed in the story. The author had an agenda and had to insert that instead of portraying closer to historical truth. Too bad!
Ballazan
One of the best books I have read in ages. Well written, moving and historically correct. Morgan really did her research. It is another story of strong women under difficult circumstances. Once I started reading, I could not put it down.
Jorad
This book was everything I had hoped for and so much more. It was accurate and elucidating. The writing was so succulent that I read and re-read some of the passages several times to savor them. It was riveting and spellbinding. I am so proud to call Alyce Kyteler my 20th generation ancestress. I am so grateful to Robin Morgan for introducing her to me in such stunning detail.

Great book, very moving. Parts of it are difficult to get through because of the brutal subject matter but it's one of my favorite books.
This book shows that religious fanaticism coupled with ignorance and hatred is so very dangerous. Never again the Burning Times!
