dc.description.abstractEnglish: This article investigates the representation of “dulle Griet” by the seventeenth-century artists David II Teniers and David III Ryckaert in the context of Catholic Flanders. In a society preoccupied with hierarchical order both the state and church aimed to root out archaic beliefs and customs, and to save society from witchcraft. The representations of mad Meg are interpreted as comic archaisms satirising the magical culture of the peasants to confirm the superiority of the urban elite. While these imaginative inventions heightened their artistic prestige and social standing, it is argued that the painters also contributed to the efforts to demystify the ideology of witch hunting.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Hierdie artikel ondersoek die voorstelling van “dulle Griet” deur die sewentiende-eeuse kunstenaars David II Teniers en David III Ryckaert in die konteks van Katolieke Vlaandere. In ’n maatskappy wat behep was met hiërargiese orde het beide die staat en kerk daarna gestrewe om argaïese gelowe en gebruike uit te roei en om die samelewing van heksery te red. Die voorstellings van dulle Griet word geïnterpreteer as komiese argaïsmes wat die magiese kultuur van die boere gehekel het om die superioriteit van die stedelike elite te bevestig. Terwyl hierdie verbeeldingryke uitvindings hul artistieke aansien en sosiale status verhoog het, kan dit bepleit word dat die skilders ook bygedra het tot die strewe om die ideologie van heksevervolging te ontmasker.af
