The Male Witch

(Kristin) Witchcraft in the late medieval and early modern European world was a highly gendered crime. The majority of victims were women but a significant percentage were men – and in some regions, men made up the majority of the accused. The male witch appeared wherever there were witchcraft accusations – he was known as a maleficius, wicca, sorcier, or hexenmeister … just don’t call him a warlock.
