Witches and Soothsayers in the Ancient World

Birgitta Hoffmann

Were there witches in Rome? What did they do? Where there love potions? And where did you go to poison your relatives? Also, how could you find out, if you would be caught or if you were the next emperor?

Witches and Soothsayers were very much a presence in the Roman imagination, but what do we know about their lives and the way they were perceived by their neighbourhoods.
