Journey to the Witches' Sabbath: A Historical and Folkloric Examination
Time & Location
Aug 13, 2021, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
About the event
"Grab your broomsticks and pitchforks and come along for an exciting journey to the infamous Witches' Sabbath. In this class we will be traveling back in time to examine and explore the varied historical and folkloric roots of the Sabbath - from early accusations of cannibalism and infaticide to fantastic legends regarding night wandering women and midnight flights. From the depths of the past we will then follow threads back to the present, witnessing how the many disparate threads of Witchlore became interwoven to form modern interpretations of the Sabbath - including those which are found in Wicca and Traditional Witchcraft."
