Witchcraft in the times of henry viii and beyond

Witchcraft in the times of henry viii and beyond

Years before Henry acceded to the throne, Pope Innocent VIII had decreed in a papal bull document of 1484 that ‘sorceresses were real and harmful through their involvement in the acts of Satan’

Unlike growing paranoia over witchcraft and the practising of it on the continent, England’s climate was more muted and more accepting of some forms of divination.

This tradition of practising magic, spell casting and communicating with the dead, didn’t always attract the wrath of the Catholic Church to the point of condemnation until such assumed practices were viewed as demonic and heretical.

For King Henry sorcery was acceptable as long as it tallied with his own beliefs and favoured his ambitions and prejudices.

Native American: The Haida People of the Pacific Northwest

Traditionally, many distinct Nations occupied the Pacific Coast on the mainland and the many small islands around it. Despite having different cultures and languages, these Indigenous Nations shared at least one powerful resource in common: the ocean. The ocean defined the way of life for the traditional occupants of these beautiful territories. The People of the coast were well adapted to traveling over water and harvesting the abundant marine life that the Pacific Ocean had to offer. 

The climate along the coast was drastically milder than the far north or even than other inland territories at the same latitudes. The Indigenous Peoples along the coast benefited from more forgiving temperatures and weather. They also benefited from the long growing season with ample diversity of flora and fauna in their territories. Finding food for survival was rarely an issue for the Indigenous Peoples of the Pacific Northwest.

Native American History: The Zapotecs and European Contact

Unfortunately for the Indigenous Peoples of Mesoamerica, it was the Spaniards who first explored the area with the intent to discover and colonize. The Spaniards had a less diplomatic approach to colonization than the French and English did in the same era. Whereas the French and English initially sought to trade with and learn from the Indigenous Peoples they encountered, the Spaniards were known as more ruthless colonizers; they killed as many Indigenous People as possible and tried to conquer and wipe out the cultures as much as possible. 

Right around the time that the Europeans were first exploring the region now known as Mexico, the Zapotecs were engaged in a series of battles with the Aztecs. The Aztecs were becoming the dominant force between the two although they had yet to conquer the Zapotecs. 

Shortly after the final battle between the Zapotecs and the Aztecs, the Spaniards arrived. They first encountered the Incas and Aztecs. Like the other European explorers and traders, The Spanish conquistadors spread diseases throughout the Indigenous villages, immediately lowering the populations and limiting their ability to adequately defend themselves. The Aztecs and Incas were the first of the Mesoamerican civilizations to be conquered by the Spaniards. 

Having heard this news, the Zapotecs, hoping for a more diplomatic outcome, attempted to avoid the same fate by avoiding attacking the Spaniards. The tactic did not work and ultimately the diseases and the conquistadors decimated the Zapotecs as well. After the Spaniards conquered Mexico, very few Indigenous People remained alive and many of those who did survive were ill-fated to become enslaved by the Spanish colonies.

Native American History: The Bering Land Bridge Theory

Perhaps you are familiar with the Bering Land Bridge theory of how humans first migrated from Asia to the Americas. Until a few short years ago, when paleontologists discovered new artifacts, it was commonly believed and taught that humans first made their way to North America by following and hunting big game animals across a span of land that once existed between Alaska and Siberia. The previous evidence suggested that this happened about 13,000-14,000 years ago, where the Bering Strait exists today. 

It was believed in this theory that as the ice receded after the Ice Age, a group of humans who had been inhabiting eastern Asia were able to cross a land bridge that became accessible for migration by foot. Although anthropologists widely accepted the Bering Land Bridge theory for many years, there always remained questions about whether it was possible given the age of the artifacts and the dates of the ice receding. It seemed that the evidence of humans in America was older than the time when the Bering Land Bridge would have been clear of ice. For that reason, scientists had been left seeking more information on when and how Indigenous People made their way to North America.
