Vendredi: Chthonian Histories
A witch or hag is she which being deluded by a league made with the devil through his persuasion, inspiration and juggling, thinketh she can design what manner of evil things whatsoever, either by thought or imprecation, as to shake the air with lightnings and thunder, to cause hail and tempests, to remove green corn or trees to another place, to be carried on her familiar - which hath taken upon him the deceitful shape of a goat, swine or calf, etc. - into some mountain far distant, in a wonderful short space of time, and sometimes to fly upon a staff or fork, or some other instrument, and to spend all the night after with her sweetheart in playing, sporting, banqueting, dancing, dalliance and divers other devilish lusts and lewd disports, and to shew a thousand such monstrous mockeries.
