    About The Penguin Book of Witches. Chilling real-life accounts of witches, from medieval Europe through colonial America, compiled by the New York Times bestselling author of The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane and The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs From a manual for witch hunters written by King James himself in , to court documents from the Salem witch trials of , to newspaper. Go count all the exclamation points in The dare you. Give up? So did we. There is so much awe and amazement in this book that, in certain chapters, nearly every sentence ends in an exclamation point. The narrator is enthralled by his Grandmamma's stories; the witches are amazed at the amazing-ness that is The Grand High Witch; the narrator is in awe of the beautiful hotel.

    Witches’ sabbath, nocturnal gathering of witches, a colourful and intriguing part of the lore surrounding them in Christian European concept dates from the midth century when it first appeared in Inquisition records, although revels and feasts mentioned by such classical authors as the Romans Apuleius and Petronius Arbiter may have served as inspiration. The accusers began, after Tituba's examination, including in their testimony specifics about signing the devil's book, usually that the accused as specters had tried to force the girls to sign the book, even torturing them. A consistent theme by the accusers was that they refused to sign the book and refused to even touch the book.

    Book of wiccan spells - Lisa Chamberlain. The ultimate encyclopedia of spells - Michael Johnstone. The complete guide to crystal astrology - Marina Costelloe. Encyclopedia of spells - Judika Illes. Wiccan magick - Raven Grimassi ~~~🌙~~~ All credit goes to the original owner of these books. I do not own any of them or the rights to them. The Penguin Book of witches is unquestionably my favorite nonfiction book about witches. It’s a collection of historical documents, writings about the seventeenth-century witch trials in the US. This is the best history book about witches I’ve read so far. I found the stories .
