Archaic Traces: A History of Pyrenean Witchcraft


The Pyrenees has an exceptional record of witchcraft in the form of trials, folklore, place names, and carvings. This project will aim to chart the rise of this maleficious craft in rural communities, and explore the myths, legends, and sites associated with ‘las brujas/les sorcieres’. This will result in an authoritative volume on the subject and include research into the possible origins of certain beliefs, connections, and practices unique to Pyrenean witchcraft.
