Witches. One of the most persecuted, least understood groups of people on the planet. Blending ideas of occult magic with Wiccan and pagan traditions, practitioners of witchcraft have been labelled everything from demonic to jesters. For most of their history, witches were treated with savagery and contempt; they were frequently run from towns during ‘witch hunts’ and, worse, burned at the stake for their heretical beliefs in black magic. Sometimes, they didn’t even practice black magic. Sometimes, merely eccentric women or artists or alchemists that seemed peculiar to the hierarchical townsmen were cast out as witches.
