Tying historical witches to the modern age, Brontë Mansfield explores the evolution of witches in literature, culture, religion, and beyond. If you enjoyed Stacy Schiff's The Witches and Katherine Howe's The Penguin Book of Witches, you're looking for the real world behind The Crucible, Outlander, or Macbeth, or you're just curious about the mysticism tradition, this pod's for you. Well-researched and beautifully produced, Mansfield's Mystic is truly enjoyable!
