In this work, a group of international scholars attempt to make women visible in the history of science by rethinking the history of science itself. Modern definitions of science have tended to exclude women's actual contributions, particularly in discussions of the Renaissance, which does not offer a model of enquiry equivalent to modern science. However, during the period 1500-1700 women were making a substantial contribution to the development of natural philosophy, a field which included science, medicine, technology and the history of ideas. Women from all parts of society worked both on their own and alongside men in a broad general practice of science and medicine that is reflected in their literary writings, their technical handbooks and the few books of science and philosophy which they left. The essays collected here are cross-disciplinary in approach and offer fresh research into the social and intellectual contexts for science as the English Renaissance moved from the formation of Gresham College in 1597 to the inauguration of the Royal Society in 1662.

An in-depth investigation of traditional European folk medicine and the healing arts of witches • Explores the outlawed “alternative” medicine of witches suppressed by the state and the Church and how these plants can be used today • Reveals that female shamanic medicine can be found in cultures all over the world • Illustrated with color and black-and-white art reproductions dating back to the 16th century Witch medicine is wild medicine. It does more than make one healthy, it creates lust and knowledge, ecstasy and mythological insight. In Witchcraft Medicine the authors take the reader on a journey that examines the women who mix the potions and become the healers; the legacy of Hecate; the demonization of nature’s healing powers and sensuousness; the sorceress as shaman; and the plants associated with witches and devils. They explore important seasonal festivals and the plants associated with them, such as wolf’s claw and calendula as herbs of the solstice and alder as an herb of the time of the dead--Samhain or Halloween. They also look at the history of forbidden medicine from the Inquisition to current drug laws, with an eye toward how the sacred plants of our forebears can be used once again.
