Book review

Despite the French book first being published in 1957 its scholastic and historical value still remains at a premium. One may readily ask whether witchcraft has not outlived its usefulness. To this question we may well quote what old king Arkel said that history does not produce useless events: Maeterlinck, Pelleas et Melisande, Act 1 scene 2. The book "The Lord of the Rings", written by distinguished author J. R. R. Tolkien on the subject of witchcraft, is extremely interesting. The witchcraft has therefor been a glittering vogue. In the translation of the book by Dr Andrew Brown, a fellow of Magdane college, Cambridge University, its editor is steeped in both French literature and history, he has read and edited the translation to such a degree that he has made it reach the literary pinnacle. Witchcraft is different from magic in that it is not science and thereby affects primitive mentalities. It was one of the scourges of bygone centuries and its roots lie deep in the darkness of the ancient world. The triple Bombo invoked by the witches of Thessaly would eventually join the fairies worshipped by the anxious peasant women of the seventeenth century. Witchcraft is a significant protest against Catholicism and Protestantism. It is a daughter of poverty and the hope of the rebellious. Witchcraft always erupts in countries troubles by civil or foreign wars, or by natural catastrophes. It is the most profound aspect of their fears and hatred. Man wards off evil. But if need be, he will use it against his neighbour, out of hatred or love. The reality of witchcraft is made dreadfully clear in the punishment meted out to witches and sorcerers. For every male witch there are ten thousand female witches because women are more sensitive to various influences. Witchcraft is merely a word in men's mouths; a word used to describe one's spiritual enemy, or simply one's enemy. Conclusion: From the 15th century to the end of the 17th century, a terrible series of epidemics of witchcraft raged across Europe.
