While researching English translations of the Fihrist by al-Nadim (because I wanted to see what books and works it listed by both ancient Greek and Roman authors and if it possibly listed now lost Byzantine works) I accidentally came across this absolutely fascinating book entitled The True History of Wizards and Witches.

I have only perused it so far but already it has some fascinating historical analysis and details which I am anxious to study in depth. I thought some of you might very well enjoy it and learn from it.



You can also download it as a .pdf as I have done.
