  • I love the sweet female creatures called witches, strix stupid males or assumed. We summarize the history of witches of Benevento. In the fourth century BC the ancient settlers Shores of Magna Greece transplanted orgiastic worship of Cybele in Sannio. Then the saga – known as early as the 13th century – Italy and quickly spread to Europe in 1600, when in Benevento, true place of origin of the tradition, there was intense on it learned disputes. The belief of the existence of witches, it merged with the echoes of the mysterious orgiastic rites of the Longobards in Benevento, which had been the capital of their vast southern Duchy. In that distant century VII, nostalgically faithful to national traditions, the new happy land which had welcomed and that then had to absorb them with their conversion to Catholicism, and by joining the surviving Roman civilization, they practiced the cult of Wothan, the father of the gods. The sweet witches should be loved and respected, if ever you can to meet them. I say this from experience.
