Class & Open Circle - History of Witchcraft

  • Jun 2, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • UU Church of Haverhill

NOTE: This will be a new updated presentation for those who have attended in the past.

One figure, above all, has haunted the human imagination since humans began to imagine: the witch. Witchcraft seems always to have been with us, but the curious will ask: where did it come from and where is it going?

Anthropologists often define witchcraft as "the use of malevolent powers by psychic means without the need for ritual or charm". This may have been so for the days of the Inquisition but not for the contemporary western world where witches work magic through spells.

This class provides a historical overview of how modern-day magic evolved from early man, the beliefs and customs of the Celts, and other ancient, Indo-European peoples.

Class starts at 6PM followed by Open Circle

    Love coming to this group! As always the class was thought provoking and insightful. I feel like I have a real "home" here. Thanks!

    Where do I enter once I am at the church and are we allowed to bring in bottled water?

      Do you live near Lowell. I can pick you up. I know you don't know me but you sounded bummed out about not going.

    Work decided to schedule me for the night of the 2nd, so I won't be able to be there for class or circle.
