A History of Magic and Witchcraft in Wales Paperback / softback


Wales had a rich gallery of magical specialists (prophets, cunning-men, physicians etc), including many who were suspected of harmful witchcraft.

Richard Suggett examines all types of magical specialists, including those regarded as beneficial as well as harmful.

Popular belief in witchcraft in Wales did not decline with the abolition of the Witchcraft Act in 1736.

Indeed belief in witchcraft beliefs became darker in form and was transformed into a novel form of cursing the use of cursing wells, many of which are still in existence in Wales.
