However, they-'add, the-belief persisted that Halloween was a gathering time for unsanctified, as well as sanctified, spirits and long after the church triumphed over paganism' Europeans continued to use magic rites to placate spirits. "The result," the Lintons ssy, : 'was the emergence of witchcraft as a more or less organized cult in opposition to the church. Much of its ritual was a travesty of Christian rites, but it also incorporated many of the ancient beliefs and practices, among them the ancient sacred days. Halloween became the great witch night."
