THE WITCH CONTROVERSY


Eastern and Biblical Authorities

The Bible (Old and New Testaments and Apocrypha; see concordance). In Sota 9 a (written c. 200 A.D. though the legend is probably much older) and in Beresh. Rabba 18, the devil is impelled to tempt Eve by jealousy and lust. Beresh. 42 ascribes the birth of Cain to intercourse between Satan and Eve. See Hastings, D. B. V, p. 409, col. 2; Weber, System der Altsynagog. Paläst. Theol. 54; Blau, Das altjüdische Zauberwesen, 1898; Conybeare, F. C., Myths, Magic and Morals, 1910. Idea of pact with Satan found in legend of St. Basilius, bp. of Caesarea (370–9), and in legend of Theophilus (c. 540 A.D.), trans. by Paulus Diaconus and versified by Roswitha of Gandersheim.
