The witch in history is very different from the image in Harry Potter, Wicked, or the modern day Pagan. A Brief History of Witchcraft sets out to explore how the witch phenomenon began in medieval Europe and how it has continued to haunt us for more than 500 years. Perfect for anyone intrigued by the clandestine, contentious role of witchcraft in history, this book reveals the mysterious layers of characters, scandals, and trials that made witchcraft a timeless universal fascination.
