You’ll then move into the next course of this two-part program, The History of Witches in the Western World.

This course will provide you with an in-depth approach to the history of witchcraft in the Near East, Europe, and North America, as told through the tales of the mythological and historical figures associated with witchcraft and magick from the dawn of mankind to the beginning of the twentieth century. Through the analysis of their biographies and the contexts within which they “lived”, the student will be presented with the varied spectrum of women and men who have been

labeled as ‘witch’ throughout time; and the anthropological transformations which occurred throughout history regarding the changing figure of the ‘Witch’ and the nature of her/his power and their presence within the politics and pop culture of their society.
