Witchcraft in the Christian is what women do when they use magic. Witches it was and is imagined are of two or three types.

  • White Witches used magic in good ways like healing sick people and were not necessarily bad.
  • Black Witches were women who had sold their souls to the devil. Unless they repented they would burn in Hell forever. While on Earth black witches were more powerful than white Witches.
  • Grey Witches were neither good nor bad. It is not clear how this fits in with the theology above.


Past centuries

Therefore most wizards or sorcerers were more powerful than withes. Women were also considered more liable to temptation than men because Eve committed Original sin before Adam. Therefore it was believed that witches were more common than wizards. There isd no record of how many innocent women were burnt to death or executed in other cruel ways because some judge thought they were withes.
