A wizard is a male magician who uses supernatural or occult skills to alter the world around him. Until the fourteenth century, Western society’s term “witchcraft” had more in common with sorcery from non-Western cultures.
The idea of magic was very similar in villages from Russia to Ireland and everywhere else before the fourteenth century.
Nonetheless, the similarities stemmed not from cultural diffusion or any secret magical group but from the age-old human desire to achieve one’s goals using supernatural means.
Like their counterparts around the world, early Western wizards and witches worked in secret for personal gain. They used a variety of methods, including chants and formulas, oracles, divination, charms, and amulets (we know!), healing or magic salves, magical potions, and so on.
