What is the image that appears in your mind when you think of the word "witch"? I can quite confidently assume that you are probably thinking of an image of and old, unattractive woman in a black dress, holding a broom in her hands and hiding her face? That kind of picture of witches is quite popular and everybody seems to think of them this way. But you are wrong. Read this article to see how the story of witchcraft actually unfolded.
It is an ancient tradition and storytellers many eras ago used to tell stories about witchcraft-like practices. But it was relatively recently that witches started to be persecuted in the 1500s. The year was 1563 when witchcraft was made illegal - an act was passed that allowed to accuse anyone of being a witch or associating with a witch. However, it took 30 years for anyone to be convicted under this act. The first major trials over witches took place in 1590, by the initiative of King James VI. During the return trip from Denmark, he and his new bride had to take shelter from a tempest that almost killed them. This, the king believed, was a conspiracy against him by the witches. He had a hundred people arrested, most of which were tortured and burned alive.
The second string of trials happened in the 1660s, with widespread witch hunts and persecution taking place. This time it was even more complicated, since witches as retaliation started making additional accusations. Especially strange were the Aberdeen Trials where seven women were accused of using mystical powers to murder people, and using body parts from their victims for making potions.
The Witchcraft Act was abandoned only in the year 1736. Almost four thousand people are estimated to have been tortured and killed in Scotland alone due to these laws.
