Witches & Wisewoman – A History of Witchcraft by Maureen James

A very popular illustrated talk outlining the changing attitude to people who were called ‘witches’ from the medieval acceptance of their role as healers or wise women, through their persecution by Matthew Hopkins to the foundation of modern Wicca. This talk also briefly considers the role of superstition, the popularity of predicting the future, and the place of the older woman in England throughout the ages.
