In medieval Europe a ‘witch’ was often a wise person, usually a wise woman- one who was skilled in the healing arts. She may have had knowledge of ancient herbal medicines and was often a midwife as well. Her religious beliefs, if she had any, were more often than not a faith based on the ancient environment which surrounded her and thus she had a supreme belief in, and respect for Nature. Her faith lay in the sun,the moon, the forest, and in all livings creatures. She also had a special reverence for the seasons of the year and the seasonal festivals celebrating the change in the weather and the harvesting of crops.

Medieval Europe was, for the most part, a patriarchal society. An intelligent woman was often shunned, considered to be a witch. This knowledge, this wisdom was oftentimes centered on the healing arts - on the use of herbal medicines and serving as the village midwife. Skills in the healing arts were passed from woman to woman through the stories they told.
