Learn More About The Witch Drawing

​Witches are usually described as women who practice magic, cast spells, and influence events using supernatural powers.

Other witches worship nature or various gods and goddesses. Did you know? Male witches are often called warlocks.

​Individuals fitting this description have occupied various cultures throughout history. Ancient "mystery religions" of Greece and Rome involved spells, omens, and magical concoctions. From the middle ages until the end of the 1700s, "witch hunts" took place in Europe and North America.

Supposed witches were often weighed or thrown into bodies of water, as they were thought to have no weight.

If the courts decided a person was a witch, they were killed. Today, many tribal cultures employ "witch doctors" as physicians, and certain religions still practice witchcraft.
