¿QUÉ ES LA BRUJERÍA?

Este texto tiene como objetivo proponer una breve aproximación a la historia de la brujería durante la Edad Moderna prestando especial atención al contexto español e incorporando parte de las aportaciones que los estudios de género vienen proponiendo sobre la temática.

What about the Inquisition? | Ciencia y maleficios en la Edad Media | Scoop.it

The Inquisition is a good example of the sort of religious persecution about which the Church needs to be repentant. Eamon duffy, who is Reader in Church History at Cambridge University and author of the best-selling Saints and Sinners: a history of the popes (Yale, 1997), describes the work of the Inquisition and concludes that any apology for it must acknowledge 'a collectieve and radical failure of vision and fidelity to the demands of the gospel.'

The Inquisition was an ecclesiastical court and process of the Roman Catholic Church setup for the purpose towards the discovery and punishment of heresy which wielded immense power and brutality in medieval and early modern times. The Inquisitions function was principally assembled to repress all heretics of rights, depriving them of their estate and assets which became subject to the ownership of the Catholic treasury, with each relentlessly sought to destroy anyone who spoke, or even thought differently to the Catholic Church.

Medieval Witchcraft

Mention the word ‘witch’ today, and, more often than not, connotations of an old woman,
dressed in black swiftly flying through the air while riding on a large broom handle, comes to mind.
Although witches and witchcraft are not common place today, these have existed throughout the
past centuries1. During the Patristic Period both Tertullian and Augustine accepted the validity of
witchcraft,2 whereas Chrysostom and others rejected it. Possibly the most well-known witch is the
‘Witch of Endor’ who was called upon to revive the ‘spirit of Samuel’ so that Israel could receive
counsel from him.3 Dr. Margaret Murray conjectures that witchcraft may have had its origins in
Paleolithic festival rites practised by shamans in Africa and/or Hawaii.4

the myths and history of red hair - witchcraft and heresy

the myths and history of red hair - witchcraft and heresy | Ciencia y maleficios en la Edad Media | Scoop.it

Red hair was apparently a sign of witchcraft in Christian Europe and it's said that it was often seen as a marker of guilt in the eyes of witch finders. To what extent this is true we'll probably never truly know, but it does appear from the evidence that red hair was certainly seen as untrustworthy and something that aroused suspicion. What follows are examples of this prejudice.

Medieval Wicca & Sorcery - Witchcraft, Satanism, Practices - Dark Ages

Medieval Wicca & Sorcery - Witchcraft, Satanism, Practices - Dark Ages | Ciencia y maleficios en la Edad Media | Scoop.it

Sorcery was very common during the Dark Ages. It was so common that many measurements had to be taken as a failed attempt to completely eradicate satanic practices or sorcery (which were considered to be almost the same).

 

This, itself, led medieval people to discomfort as they felt to have had their freedom taken away by a superior force. This of course was not liked and it was a cause of many internal battles. Nevertheless; most people who were involved in such battles were often sent to medieval torture which increased the fear inspired and made sorcerers or witches think twice before attempting to do any such practices

The witchcraft of the early Christian period was essentially common sorcery or folk-magic developed over the centuries from its roots in the Ancient Period, not involving demons or devils. Anglo-Saxon magic involved spells and simple mechanical remedies, sometimes even mixed with Christian religious elements (such as saying the Lord's Prayer while brewing a potion). Early Christian methodology, involving saints and divine relics,

Witchcraft | Ciencia y maleficios en la Edad Media | Scoop.it

It was not until the very end of the medieval period (ca. 1500) that a definition emerged of the witch as a person in league with the devil, and that full-scale persecution began. In the period from 1000-1500 concepts of the witch ranged from that of benevolent healer to feared sorcerer or sorceress

The Arcane Archive - [ Inquisition vs. witch hunting hysteria] | Ciencia y maleficios en la Edad Media | Scoop.it

The Inquisition and the witch burning craze were actually
two very different and distinct movements with different
goals. They are commonly, and mistakenly, lumped together by
the crowd that euphemistically refers to the "burning
times" either through lack of knowledge of the real
historical events or because they desire to achieve greater
sympathy for the past transgressions committed against
pagans.

Historical Overview of the Inquisition

Historical Overview of the Inquisition | Ciencia y maleficios en la Edad Media | Scoop.it

After the Roman Church had consolidated its power in the early Middle Ages, heretics came to be regarded as enemies of society. The crime of heresy was defined as a deliberate denial of an article of truth of the Catholic faith, and a public and obst inate persistence in that alleged error. At this time, there was a sense of Christian unity among townspeople and rulers alike, and most of them agreed with the Church that heretics seemed to threated society itself.

Medieval Inquisition

Medieval Inquisition | Ciencia y maleficios en la Edad Media | Scoop.it

The start of the medieval inquisition is generally dated to 1231 when Pope Gregory IX announced his Papal Bull Excommunicamus. The Excommunicamus (to read the Latin text click here) established inquisitorial courts answerable directly to the pope. These courts bypassed courts created by local Bishops, as had been Church practice until the thirteenth century. Inquisitorial courts were comprised of specially appointed, permanent ecclesiastical judges who carried with them the authority of the Catholic Church wherever they sat.

WITCHCRAFT

In medieval times, there were two types of witches:
1. Malefic—a witch that caused misfortunes such as causing beer or cheese to spoil, the
family cow to dry up to causing the death of babies.
2. Theological—where the witches made a covenant with the Devil and that is how they
acquired their magical powers. It was common for these types of witches to
be marked with a “witches mark” such as an extra nipple from which
familiars of the Devil could nurse.

Who Burned the Witches?

Since the Enlightenment, rationalists have liked to cite witch-burning as a prime example of medieval ignorance and religious (usually Catholic) bigotry run amok. (Leftists today still denounce it as a cynical plot by the strong against the weak.) Writing history that way was simple: Historians catalogued horrors, disparaged religion (or at least someone else's religion), and celebrated the triumph of science and liberal government. The history of witchcraft seemed a settled issue in 1969 when Hugh Trevor-Roper published his classic essay, "The European Witch-Craze of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries."

Witchcraft, Weather and Economic Growth in Renaissance Europe

Between the thirteenth and nineteenth centuries, as many as one million
individuals in Europe were executed for the crime of witchcraft. The
majority of the trials and executions took place during the sixteenth and
seventeenth centuries. During this period, the speed and volume of executions
were astonishing: in one German town, as many as 400 people were killed in a
single day (Midelfort, 1972).

Medieval Sourcebook: Witchcraft Documents [15th Century]

Medieval Sourcebook: Witchcraft Documents [15th Century] | Ciencia y maleficios en la Edad Media | Scoop.it

The really intense period of persecution of witches did not come until the late 16th and 17th centuries. The basic doctrines of the later witchcraze were laid down in documents of the later medieval period. These documents built on longstanding folk beliefs which were put in vaguely academic dress.

There has been much recent discussion of whether witches actually existed. For a long period the whole discussion was seen as a mirror of psychological anxieties. Some recent authors - notably Carlo Ginzberg - however, have argued that there were indeed groups of people who regarded themselves as witches.

EL FIN DEL MUNDO: Historia de las cazas de brujas

EL FIN DEL MUNDO: Historia de las cazas de brujas | Ciencia y maleficios en la Edad Media | Scoop.it

La caza de brujas es la búsqueda de brujas o evidencias de brujería, que llevaba a acusar a la persona afectada de brujería, a un juicio y finalmente a una condena. Muchas culturas, tanto antiguas como modernas, han reaccionado de forma puntual a las acusaciones de brujería con miedo supersticioso y han castigado, o incluso asesinado, a los presuntos o presuntas practicantes.
