Publisher: Waverley Books

Author: Lily Seafield

All over Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries a wave of paranoia and hysteria was taking hold. All the ills of society were blamed on witchcraft and Scotland did not escape this obsession with the supernatural.

This book gives the stories of Scotland's witches, the accused, the confessed, the trials, and the superstitions. It also explains about the beliefs of modern witches and the place of Wicca in society today.

A good introductory book for those who know nothing about the history of witches or Wicca.
