If you are interested in knowing its origin and how it is developed nowadays, our witchcraft books in PDF format will be useful for you.
Witchcraft is the set of practices, knowledge and beliefs carried by the so-called witches. In ancient times, they were dedicated to healing through herbs and used to be highly respected in the villages and even by some rulers and kings.
However, with the passage of time, the figure of the witch became a negative reference and began to be associated with demonic and evil practices. For this reason, in many parts of Europe they were persecuted, to the point of being killed by hanging or burned at the stake. The Catholic Church declared itself one of their main enemies.
In Spain, for example, the Holy Inquisition was a kind of tribunal that executed women considered witches. One of the disadvantages of this was that crimes were committed without real justification and these women were victims of insults or false testimony.
In the more modern stage, witchcraft was relegated to occult practices or those with no major relevance or influence in public life.
