Germany was once the witch-burning capital of the world. Here’s why by Gwynn Guilford

Wax dolls being given to the devil.

In 1572, the killings began. That year, authorities in the tiny settlement of St Maximin, in present-day Germany, charged a woman named Eva with using witchcraft to murder a child. Eva confessed under torture; she, along with two women she implicated, were burned at the stake.

The pace of prosecution picked up from there. By the mid-1590s, the territory had burned 500 people as witches—an astonishing feat, for a place that only had 2,200 residents to begin with.

Why is it that early modern Europe had such a fervor for witch hunting? Between 1400 to 1782, when Switzerland tried and executed Europe’s last supposed witch, between 40,000 and 60,000 people were put to death for witchcraft, according to historical consensus. The epicenter of the witch hunts was Europe’s German-speaking heartland, an area that makes up Germany, Switzerland, and northeastern France.

Conventional wisdom has chalked the killings up to a case of bad weather. Across Europe, weather suddenly got wetter and colder—a phenomenon known as the Little Ice Age that pelted villages with freak frosts, floods, hailstorms, and plagues of mice and caterpillars. Witch hunts tended to correspond with ecological disasters and crop failures, along with the accompanying problems of famine, inflation, and disease. When the going got tough, witches made for a convenient scapegoat.

But a recent economic study (pdf), which will soon be published in the The Economic Journal of the Royal Economic Society, proposes a different explanation for the witch hunts—one that can help us understand the way fears spread, and take hold, today.

The economic hypothesis

This alternative theory comes down to market competitionbetween churches. In early modern Europe, Protestantism emerged as the first truly viable challenger to the Catholic church’s hold on the population. The study views the Catholic and Protestant churches as competing firms, each in the business of supplying a valuable service: Salvation.

As competition for religious market share heated up, churches expanded beyond the standard spiritual services and began focusing on salvation from devilry here on earth. Among both Catholics and Protestants, witch-hunting became a prime service for attracting and appeasing the masses by demonstrating their Satan-fighting prowess.

“Similar to how contemporary Republican and Democrat candidates focus campaign activity in political battlegrounds during elections to attract the loyalty of undecided voters, historical Catholic and Protestant officials focused witch-trial activity in confessional battlegrounds during the Reformation and Counter-Reformation to attract the loyalty of undecided Christians,” write the study’s authors, Peter T. Leeson, an economist at George Mason University, and Jacob W. Russ, an economist at Bloom Intelligence, a big-data analysis firm. When it comes to winning people to your side, after all, there’s no better method than stoking fears about an outside threat—and then assuring them that you, and you alone, offer the best protection.

This concept goes a long way toward explaining not just why witch-hunting mania exploded in Europe, but also why it took hold where it did. Namely, in Germany.

“Neither holy, nor Roman, nor an empire”

Until the 1500s, the Catholic Church had claimed a monopoly on religion. Secure in its dominance, the Church employed a basic competitive strategy against the occasional challenger: it labeled proponents of other religions “heretics” and either forced their conversion or simply killed them. The Church’s two main tactics in this coercive strategy were inquisitions and crusades. 

With the German monk Martin Luther, however, that strategy stopped working.

By nailing his Ninety-five Theses to the door of his local Catholic Church in 1517, Luther was acting as an early consumer protection bureau of sorts, blasting the Catholic church for exploitative practices. The promise of superior religious service sparked the Protestant Reformation, with Swiss theologians Ulrich Zwingli and John Calvin piling on, adding to the movement’s momentum.

Per usual, the Pope declared Luther a heretic and banned the Ninety-five Theses. It turned out, though, that the Catholic Church’s coercive strategy—which worked well in Spain, Portugal

Update on Lady Beltane and Some Ways to Clean Against Cornoavirus COVID-19

I have been confirmed as having mild to moderate COVID-19. As my breathing is good my long time doctor and I feel my best course of treatment is isolating at home for approximately two to three weeks, short course of oral steroids along with a steroid inhaler ( I’ve been on for 2 years which was my saving grace of keeping my lungs somewhat clear), cough medicine, White willow bark as a fever and inflammation reducer, and lots of extra fluids.

From World Health Organization

Please keep in mind just because so far the virus in me is being controlled and I do not need to be hospitalized everyone reacts to the COVID-19 virus differently. Please contact your health care provider of other call in centers of you or anyone you know shows any type of symptom as soon as you possibly can. Wash your hands very off and use hand sanitizer when warm water and soap is unavailable.

I am not in the human medical care field in any captaincy. By deciding to use some or all of these suggestions is your decision alone. Lady Beltane and/or Coven Life/Witches of The Craft Elders and/or Sliver Sag and/or NewFound-Life.com and/or CovenLife.co and/or WitchesofTheCraft.com cannot be held liable in any way for any thing that may go wrong by not using or using any of these suggestions including but not limited to anyone in your household and/or anyone else’s household you choose to share these suggestions with contracts the COVID-19 VIRUS a.k.a. Coronavirus, a.k.a. Novel Coronavirus or any other name given to do it by the media and/or government agency any where on Mother Earth no matter how sever the symptoms and possibly dying from this virus may happen to any individual who contracts this virus.

Either buy cleaning wipes containing bleach or make your own bleach solution using 2 Tablespoons of bleach in 1 Gallon of water. Put mixture in a spray bottle to use on ALL HIGHLY TOUCHED SURFACES, counter tops, refrigerator and freezer door handles, stove handles all door jobs I side and out mailbox latch or cover, handles and faucets on every sink, tub, and shower. We wipe the toilet handle seat, and cover every time before washing our hands. This list is only my check list for my home and a suggestion on where to maybe start in your own home but it does not include everything needed to be wiped down or how often to do it. I suggest at least three to four times a day. VERY IMPORTANT do not dry any surface you harvested or wiped down with bleach mixture as that will stop it from killing the virus and other germs all everything to air dry. Speaking of air I use this same mixture but adds descriptor my favorite essential oil to it in a spray bottle to use as an spray disinfectant for the air. I first spray an even aided Cleric cross above my head reaching my arms out as far as they will go. Than I put my arm holding the bottle out as far as I can and slowly turn in a counterclockwise direction bring it in  a little bit in towards my body each time I get to the spot I started from for me this is facing East. I do this in every room in my home except the bathroom and enclosed back porch. For the bathroom I spray an arch into the bathtub area and close the shower curtain than two more arches from side as I back out of the bathroom and close the door. We started too late it seems to use paper towels damped slightly with the bleach solution to wipe off everything that comes into our home that bleach would not have an adverse effect on such as anything plastic containers, all mail or deliveries from any type of package carrier, any non food items wrapped in plastic or in a cardboard container. All foods like fruit or vegetables are washed with a mild dish detergent and warm water before being out away. It may sound time consuming or like a hassle but ask yourself, “Do I want to take the extra time to try and protect myself and/or those living in the same home? ” I  am not saying these things will stop you and your family from getting COVID-19 but with this horrible life stealing virus at least if someone in your home does get  I hope these suggestions possibly make it a mild case. The CDC and WHO suggest coughing and/or sneezing into the crook of you elbow as this will keep airborne droplets to a minimum and your hands stay cleaner. WASH YOUR HANDS ANY TIME YOU THINK OF IT OR WHEN EVER YOU COUGH AND/OR SNEEZE OR GO TO THE BATHROOM OR BEFORE EATING even when using utensils!!!! If you have longer nails use a nail brush to scrub under them every time you wash your hands for 20 seconds every time. 20 seconds is the time it takes to not rush through singing “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” three times or the “ABC Song” once.

If you would be so kind as to ask for a smooth recovery for my how ever you would choose to do it. I would be very grateful to you.

Until we meet again soon may you all be Blessed Be
