9781333490263: The Witch-Cult in Western Europe: A Study in Anthropology (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Witch-Cult in Western Europe: A Study in Anthropology

The sources from which the information is taken are the judicial records and contemporary chroniclers. In the case of the chroniclers I have studied their facts and not their opinions. I have also had access to some unpublished trials among the Edinburgh Justiciary Records and also in the Guernsey Greffe.

About the Author:

Margaret Alice Murray (13 July 1863 – 13 November 1963) was a prominent British Egyptologist and anthropologist. She is primarily known for her work in Egyptology, which was "the core of her academic career"; she was one of the first women to practice archaeology and the first woman to publicly unwrap a mummy. She is also known for her propagation of the Witch-cult hypothesis, the theory that the witch trials in the Early Modern period of Christianized Europe and North America were an attempt to extinguish a surviving pre-Christian, pagan religion devoted to a Horned God. Whilst this theory is today widely disputed and discredited by historians like Norman Cohn, Keith Thomas and Ronald Hutton, it has had a significant effect in the origins of Neopagan religions, primarily Wicca, a faith she supported.
