Event Details

Local author and historian Max Dashu discusses her new book Witches and Pagans: Women in European Folk Religion, in which she pulls the covers off ethnic lore known mostly to scholarly specialists. She shows that the old ethnic names for “witch” signify prophetess, knower, diviner, and healer. Wyrd and weirding-women, chanting over herbs, holy stones, crystal balls, weaving ceremonies, giantesses, sexual politics, and the Völuspá: this book uncovers some of the authentic ethnic roots of wyccecræft, reweaving the ripped webs of women’s culture.
