Table of contents

In the realm of religion it was understood by significant parts of the rabbinic elite that women could not make their contribution to the spiritual strength of the community and be willing to accept rabbinic authority without a modicum of religious knowledge, some means of religious expression and a measure of participation in ritual life.

This led to the development of a religious library containing educational tools accessible to women, renewed emphasis on non-public rituals women were to perform, and very gradual integration of women into the ritual life of the synagogue. With the gender role definition for Jewish women in Poland being subtly and haltingly stretched and broadened as this period progressed, it does seem appropriate to call it the early modern period. Balaban, Majer.

Many details of the witchcraft trials refer directly to traditionally defined feminine space: the household. Most accusations of maleficia concerned health, fertility and productivity — areas generally seen as responsibilities of women — and their opposites: feeding poisoning , child-rearing infanticide , healing harming , birth death.

Witchcraft could be the next step. And the possession of herbs — sometimes worn by clients of witches — could be interpreted as evidence of being a witch. Some men were sentenced — together with their convicted wifes — because they had played music pipes, dulcimer during the sabbats.

Witchcraft and Witches in the 16th and 17th century

All in all a very interesting read, even for someone like me who never had a great interest in Poland, let alone in the Polish judicial system. Wanda Wyporska is a journalist and writes well. And according to an interview she is writing a trilogy of time slip novels based on the witchcraft trials.

Those may be very interesting to a larger audience! Posted in Boeken , English articles Tagged history , Poland , witchcraft. Wiccan Rede is powered by donations and volunteers only. So feel free to donate a little something to keep us online!
