Naked Witches

5 November 2014 (Wednesday) @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Dr Leo Ruickbie

Why are witches so often depicted naked and why has ‘skyclad’ become a central part of Wicca? It is no accident. Nudity tells us something about the essential nature of witchcraft, both as it was envisioned by the witch-hunters and by today’s self-declared witches. In this talk, we will look at the visual evidence from medieval frescoes to modern practice. Dr Leo Ruickbie has a PhD from King’s College, London, for his research into contemporary witchcraft and has published widely on the occult and the supernatural.

Price: £7.  Ring 0207 419 8507 of book online

Time: 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start.
