Medieval sorcery

From The Guardian: "A mural which has come to light in Tuscany has been identified by a British university lecturer as the earliest surviving representation of witchcraft in Christian Europe.

"A book published in Italy by George Ferzoco, director of the centre for Tuscan studies at the University of Leicester, argues that at least two of the women in the porno-erotic wall painting are sorceresses.

""I have no doubt that this is by far the earliest depiction in art of women acting as witches," he said."
