20th July - Prof Ronald Hunt – The Wild Hunt and the Witches Sabbath

The Wild Hunt is a phenomenon which looms large in the modern Western consciousness both in works of fiction and in those of history. In the latter it has recently achieved a special importance as one of the building blocks of the idea of the Witches Sabbath. It is generally viewed as a nocturnal cavalcade of ghosts and fairies led by a supernatural male or female figure and derived from pagan antiquity. This lecture aims to answer the questions of where this idea comes from, how much it corresponds to actual ancient and mediaeval belief, and how much it did contribute to the concept of the Witches Sabbath
