Magick: Beliefs and Practices

Before the fourteenth century, witchcraft meant a collection of beliefs and practices, including healing through spells, mixing potions, ointments or concoctions, divining or forecasting the future, and acts of clairvoyance. Those who held sacred other beliefs and rituals, often branded witchcraft as "demon-worship".
