The origin of the myth of #Streghe is very ancient: just think that already in #Bibbia is told the story of “Witch of Endor”, the necromancer addressed by King Saul to consult the Prophet Samuel, now dead.

Further back in time, traces of magic and esoteric arts can be found in the code of Hamurabi: indeed, at the Egyptians the work of sorcerers is evoked not only for magic spells and curses … .. .but also to cure physical illnesses and the spirit and to ease the path of the dead in the afterlife
