FROM BEAUTY TO BEAST AND BACK AGAIN
By Raven Grimassi
A lecture on the evolution of the witch figure from the beautiful witches of ancient Greek mythology to the ugly hag figure of later periods.
In this lecture, Raven presents the literary and cultural evidence that demonstrates the purposeful maligning of witches, and the agenda of both the Church and the politicians to remove the witch from public favor.
