WITCHES: EVOLVING PERCEPTIONS
The Salem Witch Museum

Tuesday, October 26, 3:00 p.m.
Fee: $10

In the modern-day, the term “witch” encompasses an enormously diverse array of definitions and images. Despite its dark historical origins, when confronted with this word today, most envision a cartoonish green-skinned woman flying astride a broomstick or a beautiful, supernatural pop-culture heroine. Others still, such as those who practice Neopagan religions, may think of this as a sacred term and view this word as a spiritual designation. In this program, participants will hear about the complex and fascinating evolution of the image of the witch, tracing this story from the early modern period witch trials to the modern-day.
