Ozark Witchcraft


A Witchcraft which is practiced in the southern mountains of Arkansas and Missouri. Such a practice, one might expect, is a rejection of the "Bible belt" fundamentalist religions, particularly the Southern Baptist. denomination. The initiation occurred on three consecutive nights. The initiate, usually a young woman, slept and had sexual intercourse with a male witch who became the incarnation of the Devil. Also, on these nights this person taught the young woman many secrets of the Craft. Many initiates claimed the experience was more inspirational than Christian conversion. A.G.H.
