The Superstitions of Witchcraft

by Howard Williams

The Superstitions of Witchcraft is designed to exhibit a consecutive review of the characteristic forms and facts of a creed which (if at present apparently dead, or at least harmless, in Christendom) in the seventeenth century was a living and lively faith, and caused thousands of victims to be sent to the torture-chamber, to the stake, and to the scaffold. At this day, the remembrance of its superhuman art, in its different manifestations, is immortalised in the every-day language of the peoples of Europe.The belief in Witchcraft is, indeed, in its full development and most fearful results, modern still more than mediŠval, Christian still more than Pagan, and Protestant not less than Catholic.
