Original Title: The Rotting Goddess: The Origin of the Witch in Classical Antiquity's Demonization of Fertility Religion
Description:
Witchcraft in antiquity, and particularly the Goddess Hekate, has never been seriously studied, but sidelined as an variety of magic, or as a purely literary phenomenon, or as identical to the much-later Salemists. Here, then, is the first complete and comprehensive study of the topic from the time of Homer to the Greek Magical Papyri (800 bc400 ad), examining the slow stages by which Hekate was demonized and the mythology of the evil witch arose, and how it was not until hundreds of years later that the actual practice of witchcraft developed.
