The Rotting Goddess: Origin of the Witch in Classical Antiquity's Demonization of Fertility Religion (New)
by Rabinowitz, Jacob
Publisher: SCB Distributors
Book ID: 9781570270352, 157027035X
Usually available in 1-2 weeks
Witchcraft in antiquity, and particularly the Goddess Hekate, has never been seriously studied, but sidelined as an variety of magic, or as a purely literary phenomenon, or as identical to the much-later Salemists. Here, then, is the first complete and comprehensive study of the topic from the time of Homer to the Greek Magical Papyri (800 BC -- 00 AD), examining the slow stages by which Hekate was demonized and the mythology of the evil witch arose, and how it was not until hundreds of years later that the actual practice of witchcraft developed.
This book lifts the skirts of witchcraft, revealing the mysteries from which all scholarship to date has averted its eyes with a shudder: how Hekate became the triple goddess; why witches meet at midnight; the origin of flying ointment, the familiar spirit and the cauldron; drawing down the moon; and the meaning of the witch herself.
