Magic And Witchcraft: An Illustrated History

by Ruth Clydesdale Author

This richly illustrated book reveals the history of magic from ancient times to the birth of New Witchcraft in the modern era. It covers the most ancient practices and traditions, how it was used to try to influence unpredictable moments in life like health or the welfare of crops, and how it became blamed for natural disasters and misfortunes. The history continues in the development of contemporary witchcraft as a benevolent religion that uses ancient techniques in new ways today.
