Witches. One of the most persecuted, least understood groups of people on the planet. Blending ideas of occult magic with Wiccan and pagan traditions, practitioners of witchcraft have been labelled everything from demonic to jesters. For most of their history, witches were treated with savagery and contempt; they were frequently run from towns during ‘witch hunts’ and, worse, burned at the stake for their heretical beliefs in spirituality and magic. Sometimes, they didn’t even practice magic. Sometimes, merely eccentric women or artists or alchemists that seemed peculiar to the hierarchical townsmen were cast out as witches.

The following photos are some mysterious images of witches from a time long forgotten…some are most likely costumes, but many look to be glimpses of strange ceremonies. See if any of the faces look familiar. It could be a distant relative of yours, casting a spell on you from the past.

And please have respect for witchcraft… as the Wiccan religion reads “We are all children of the earth”.

    Poor Janet Farrar. That photo of her holding tje sword isn’t *that* old, I’d hardly classify the 70s as a mysterious long ago time. I’m pretty sure it’s out of the Witches Bible.

    • Sylvie HellNo Kaos

      Exactly what I was thinking!

      Janet Farrer Is a beautiful person.

      Sadly the 70’s was almost half a century ago. Kind of scary isn’t it?

    Oh my goodness, that line about a distant relative casting a spell…my great-great-grandmother was supposedly a hexenmeister, if my grandma’s recollection was correct.

    some are from old movies, the silent era

    witch=X=Wiccan and vice versa

    I kind of think that since people say and claim witches have been among us, that sometimes you should believe that. Because who ever said curses are’nt real

  • PhoenixNocturnal

    I think these are really neat. none of them are scary at all but very neat indeed.

    I just love the ‘College Witches’- Wearing the alphabet and the evil lord Calculus must have seemed quite funny. I know Calculus scared the hell out of me, and I’ve forgotten most all of it by now…
