Witchcraft in the Victorian Age Witchcraft in the Victorian Age Written By Staff Contributor: Elizabeth Marie Clements The Victorian Era has been associated with Witchcraft in American Hollywood and literature in many different mediums over the years. The settings for the popular show Charmed and the movie Practical Magic were Victorian houses. Literary fiction uses Victorian settings for tales of magic and sorcery frequently, and it is true that there were important Witchcraft texts published in the 1880s and 90s. The history of Witchcraft can be confusing at times, largely due to a lack of reputable resources. The era itself is commonly thought of as lasting between 1837 and 1901, during the reign of Queen Victoria of England. The concept of “the will” and personal destiny was brought to the public in an accessible way. Fortune-telling became fashionable as a parlour game as well as a form of rebellion against the “unfashionable” and outdated, unmodern and unscientific Christianity. Bibliography 1.

Dao De Jing Daripada Wikibooks. 31 Weapons are the bearers of bad news; all people should detest them. The wise man values the left side, and in time of war he values the right. Weapons are meant for destruction, and thus are avoided by the wise. Only as a last resort will a wise person use a deadly weapon. If peace is her true objective how can she rejoice in the victory of war? 32 The Tao is nameless and unchanging. If a ruler abides by its principles, then her people will willingly follow. Naming is a necessity for order, but naming can not order all things. All things end in the Tao just as the small streams and the largest rivers flow through valleys to the sea. 33 Those who know others are intelligent; those who know themselves are truly wise. Those who know they have enough are truly wealthy. Those who persist will reach their goal. Those who keep their course have a strong will. 34 The great Tao flows unobstructed in every direction. The soft and pliable overcomes the hard and inflexible.
