PaganNewsBeagle Faithful Friday Oct 3

Today's Faithful Friday post includes stories on witchcraft and witchhunting, religious violence (is it inevitable?), and an examination of eco-feminism from a Pagan point-of-view.

Witchcraft in the 16th and 17th centuries has been one of the most popular topics with historians and the reading public for almost half a century. Here's a review of a new book on the witchhunting mania in England at the time of James I.

This exhibition at the British Museum examines the face of the witch as portrayed in artwork over the centuries.

Is religion inherently violent? Two book reviews of Karen Armstrong's new book Fields of Blood: Religion and the History of Violence discuss the question. The review at the Spectator suggests that religions "go violent" when they reach a critical mass of popularity, while the review at the Guardian says that the "secular state" is a historical anomaly that can't be counted on to keep religious theocracy in check.

John Halstead discusses the value (and history) of eco-feminism and its importance in the Deep Ecology movement.
