About this Item: Emereo Classics, Australia, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Finally available, a high quality book of the original classic edition of The Witch-cult In Western Europe. This is a new and freshly published edition of this culturally important work by Margaret Alice Murray, which is now, at last, again available to you. Enjoy this classic work today. These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The Witch-cult In Western Europe: The admission ceremonies were often elaborate, and it is here that the changes in the religion are most clearly marked; certain ceremonies must have been introduced when another cult was superimposed and became paramount, such as the specific renunciation of a previous religion which was obligatory on all new candidates, and the payment to the member who brought a new recruit into the fold. .No explanation is offered by the objectors as to how the Inquisitors arrived at the form of questionary, nor is any regard given to the injunction to all Inquisitors to acquaint themselves with all the details of any heresy which they were commissioned to root out; they were to obtain the information from those who would recant and use it against the accused; and to instruct other judges in the belief and ritual of the heresy, so that they also might recognize it and act accordingly. .If, as happened among the East Saxons, the king forsook his old gods, returned to them again, and finally forsook them altogether, the tribe followed his lead, and, in public at least, worshipped Christ, Odin, or any other deity whom the king favoured for the moment; but there can be hardly any doubt that in private the mass of the people adhered to the old religion to which they were accustomed. .We enjoin, that every priest zealously promote Christianity, and totally extinguish every heathenism; and forbid[23] well worshipings, and necromancies, and divinations, and enchantments, and man worshipings, and the vain practices which are carried on with various spells, and with frithsplots, [15] and with elders, and also with various other trees, and with stones, and with many various delusions, with which men do much of what they should not.-And we enjoin, that every Christian man zealously accustom his children to Christianity, and teach them the Paternoster and the Creed. .It has come to our ears that numbers of both sexes do not avoid to have intercourse with demons, Incubi and Succubi; and that by their sorceries, and by their incantations, charms, and conjurations, they suffocate, extinguish, and cause to perish the births of women, the increase of animals, the corn of the ground, the grapes of the vineyard and the fruit of the trees, as well as men, women, flocks, herds, and other various kinds of animals, vines and apple trees, grass, corn and other fruits of the earth; making and procuring that men and women, flocks and herds and other animals shall suffer and be tormented both from within and without, so that men beget not, nor women conceive; and they impede the conjugal action of men and women.

About this Item: Amazon Digital Services LLC - Kdp Print Us, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Margaret Alice Murray's acclaimed history of European witchcraft is accompanied by descriptions of the rituals performed and concoctions made by witches centuries ago. The author's burgeoning knowledge is a service to the subject; what might otherwise be overly dry or arcane is revealed in a manner both exciting and thought-provoking. We are offered historical observations of the witchcraft tradition, with the life and times of the women accused of its practice examined in the context of the era. Readers will be left in no doubt about the traditions, ceremonies and magical rites practiced by witches. Although Murray was later found to be overstating the influence and magnitude of the witchcraft tradition - she considered it to be a popular successor to paganism - she explains its origins, growth and persecution of witches with astute narration. Murray posits that witches were thought to be worshiping the devil; a grave crime in the fervently Christian Europe of yore. The appendices contain a series of subjects, such as a narration of witch trials of the 17th century, certain ointments created by witches with the desire of taking flight, and the presence of witch-like qualities in historical figures such as Joan of Arc. Although certain aspects of her history have since been proven inaccurate, Murray's account as a whole remains an engrossing and detailed anthropological examination of the subject.

About this Item: Aziloth Books, United Kingdom, 2019. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Margaret Murray's enthralling study of witch beliefs and customs has become a timeless anthropological classic. Rejecting the consensus view that female witches were simply 'hysterical' or subject to 'suggestion', she uses sound scholarship and comprehensive research to reveal that 'Devil-worship' was in fact a bona fide pre-Christian religion, that was forced 'underground' owing to ceaseless persecution by the Church authorities. All aspects of this 'Old Religion' are covered, from admission ceremonies and the 'witch-mark', through divining, fertility rites and the Sabbat, to spells and sacrifices - including those of children and even of 'the god' himself! According to the The English Historical Review, the book is "so comprehensive in scope, and so rich and varied in its treatment of the witch-cult .it is not likely to be superseded." This the full, original version of Murray's masterpiece, complete with Notes, Bibliography and five Appendices, including a chemical analysis of 'flying ointments'.

These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The Witch-cult In Western Europe: The admission ceremonies were often elaborate, and it is here that the changes in the religion are most clearly marked; certain ceremonies must have been introduced when another cult was superimposed and became paramount, such as the specific renunciation of a previous religion which was obligatory on all new candidates, and the payment to the member who brought a new recruit into the fold. .No explanation is offered by the objectors as to how the Inquisitors arrived at the form of questionary, nor is any regard given to the injunction to all Inquisitors to acquaint themselves with all the details of any heresy which they were commissioned to root out; they were to obtain the information from those who would recant and use it against the accused; and to instruct other judges in the belief and ritual of the heresy, so that they also might recognize it and act accordingly. .If, as happened among the East Saxons, the king forsook his old gods, returned to them again, and finally forsook them altogether, the tribe followed his lead, and, in public at least, worshipped Christ, Odin, or any other deity whom the king favoured for the moment; but there can be hardly any doubt that in private the mass of the people adhered to the old religion to which they were accustomed. .We enjoin, that every priest zealously promote Christianity, and totally extinguish every heathenism; and forbid[23] well worshipings, and necromancies, and divinations, and enchantments, and man worshipings, and the vain practices which are carried on with various spells, and with frithsplots, [15] and with elders, and also with various other trees, and with stones, and with many various delusions, with which men do much of what they should not.-And we enjoin, that every Christian man zealously accustom his children to Christianity, and teach them the Paternoster and the Creed. .It has come to our ears that numbers of both sexes do not avoid to have intercourse with demons, Incubi and Succubi; and that by their sorceries, and by their incantations, charms, and conjurations, they suffocate, extinguish, and cause to perish the births of women, the increase of animals, the corn of the ground, the grapes of the vineyard and the fruit of the trees, as well as men, women, flocks, herds, and other various kinds of animals, vines and apple trees, grass, corn and other fruits of the earth; making and procuring that men and women, flocks and herds and other animals shall suffer and be tormented both from within and without, so that men beget not, nor women conceive; and they impede the conjugal action of men and women.
