I found this really interesting. It makes the case for witchcraft being historically present in the middle ages, contrary to some writers like Hutton. I’d been having trouble reconciling Hutton’s views with the evidence for paganism in the middle ages given by (e.g) http://www.gravenimages.com.au/ageofw... (and the novel Graven Images). So this critique throws a lot of light on it, and shows how a lot of Hutton's stuff is based is not historically based but is motivated by some other agenda.
