Although, in trying to be very non-judgmental and accepting of others I went overboard in my tolerance. Everyone has flaws, but what is too much to overlook? I had no clue, until experiencing two very unhealthy relationships, which have shocked me to the core,…

    • 5 Pages

There is significantly less historical information about male witches, and what is written fuels the idea of toxic masculinity as well as demonizes women.

    the scholastics. If Adam could have become a father without the help of Eve, God would have had no need of making Eve. Eve was made for Eve. Furthermore, the Wiesber-Hanks text mentions that scholastics mention hymns were written in honor of the Virgin Mary. The purity of Virgin Mary was a complete contrast in comparison to Eve and her role in the Original Sin. The text, Witch-Hunt in Early Modern Europe mentions the reasons for the occurrence and practice of the witch craft. One of the main…

It was Rebecca who was the first sister to be accused of witchcraft, followed shortly by Mary whose warrant for arrest came not even a full month after she petitioned for her sister and rebuked the claims of the “Afflicted” girls.
