People accused of practicing maleficarum, or harmful magic, were widely persecuted. Most of the accusations took place in parts of what are now Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, and the then Holy Roman Empire. While witchcraft was condemned already in Biblical times, the hysteria about “black magic” in Europe spread at different times in various regions, with the bulk of executions occurring during the years 1580-1650Although men were also accused of witchcraft, about 75–80 percent of those executed during the witch hunts were women. Women were subject to cultural prejudices that framed them as inherently weaker than men and, thus, more susceptible to superstition and evil. In Europe, the idea of a woman’s weakness was tied to Eve’s temptation by the Devil in the Bible, but that story itself is not the sole cause for the proportion of women accused.
Even in other cultures, witchcraft accusations have been more likely to be directed towards women. It was also true that the majority of the accused and executed were among the poorest, most marginal in society. Women’s marginality compared to men added to their likelyhood to be accused.
The Theme for all the Categories of the night is “Black Magic (BM)”. We want to celebrate the power of being special, going against societal norms, being smart, being Extravagant and being different to the masses. Be inspired by Black Magic.
