I thought some questions would e good and interesting, as we do not, at least I do not see a lot of discussion on Wizardry. No not talking Harry Potter either in case some would think lols...
1) What makes a true Wizard?
2) What is some of the history, where can Wizardry in the old world be found?
3) According to somethings I have read, Wizards are only men, is this true or not, why or why not?
4) Is there a difference in Warlock and Wizard, and if so what?
Lady Hekate- who may add more questions later lols:)
LOLs I am familar or used to be with one who was but lost touch, named Celtic Wizard. Just thought make for interesting discussion and sharing here
Thoughtt maybe others as well would want to know some truth on this matter
The term wizard is coined from the word “wyzard” I forget the original language it is from but is meant “wise”. I coulis so be wrong, but , I do recall Celtic Wizard mentioning this.
1400–50; late Middle English wisard. See wise , -ard
From that, I'd have to say "wizard" is a male form for "witch".
Warlock is an old Scottish term for "traitor". Warlocks were later identified with wizards because wizards were "traitors to god", and with the idea of the Divine Right of Kings, since the king was god's representative, they were also traitors to the crown.
The modern conception of a warlock came about when witchcraft became more legal and mainstream, as defining a man who only practices "black magic".
