Witchcraft, A History

By

Witchcraft, A History is a concentrated examination of the rituals and customs of the craft’s first architects in Greece and Rome through the current resurgence of Wicca. Maxwell-Stuart deals generally with historical specifics (e.g., recent surveys and the Malleus Malleficarum) as well as the Christian church’s beliefs, which were essentially an extension of Pagan ideals, in a highly analytical yet extremely readable fashion. Witchcraft is a judicious evaluation of the “ugly crone” and burning stakes, which encompass so little of the reality of their subject matter.
