The Supernatural in Ulster Scots Literature and Folklore Project was funded by MAGUS/Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure. Its main objective was to produce an open access, online resource, ‘The Supernatural in Ulster Scots Folklore and Literature Reader’. It provides a selection of Ulster Scots literary, historical and folklore sources, from c.1672 until c.1920, relating to various aspects of the supernatural. The Supernatural Reader demonstrates that in Ulster Scots culture, both rural and urban, there was a range of sincerely held, supernatural beliefs, similar in many ways to those held elsewhere in Ireland.
