Today no civilized person believes in witchcraft. But during the Middle Ages this belief was held so strongly that thousands of people were tortured and put to death because they were considered "witches." In fact, in early colonial times in Salem, Massachusetts, 20 persons were executed as witches! Witchcraft in the Middle Ages was the "art" of controlling natural forces by power obtained from the Devil, Witches were people who made agreements with the Devil. Theywere supposed to have given over their bodies arid souls to him in exchange lor the power to perform magic in his name. When the term of the contract expired, the soul of the witch was carried by the Devil into the infernal regions to suffer everlasting fire. Witches were feared, hated, and respected, Some witches were believed able to bring back the dead and produce evil spirits. Others were thought able to cause hail, thunder, and lightning. They could cast evil spells on marked persons and cause them to become sick and die, Some witches were believed able to find lost objects, foretell the future, and inspire men and women with deadly hate or with desire for power. Some had the power to make themselves invisible and fly through the air. It was thought they could transform themselves nto animals, such as goats, mares and black cats. .Why did this belief in witches and witchcraft develop during the Middle, Ages? Before Christianity became the accepted religion in moft of Europe, a form of nature- worship was practiced in many places. The priest dressed himself n the skin of an animal, often a |bull or a goat. Then with horns or his head and a tail hanging down behind, he conducted the cere monies, This old form -of religion was practiced, long after Chris tianity spread, and many people feared it. They came to believe that the people they saw wor shipping this way were "witches. 1 Strangely enough, there are stil some ignorant people in certair parts of the world who hold on to this superstition about witch, witchcraft!
