Horns and antlers have long been associated with power, divinity and mystically enlightened states. Zan Fraser traces the evidence of reverence for horned animals from the Paleolithic and Neolithic eras in Europe into the pagan period, Middle Ages and Renaissance. From cave paintings to Cernunnos and Herne, to Oberon, Puck, and Robin Goodfellow, Fraser explores the pervasive cultural images of horned ones and the theory that the demonized Horned God became the medieval Christian Devil.
The Horned God of Wytches is the companion to Fraser’s The Goddess of Wytches. His other books, The Burning Times, A Briefe Historie of Wytches and A Briefe Historie of Magi, round out an in-depth exploration of how our popular thought about these magical, mystical and mysterious figures evolved through the centuries.
