Since the beginning of time, man has believed in forces possessing far greater powers than he, forces which could control his life either for his benefit or for his destruction. These forces soon took on names but were eventually generally classified as either gods, forces for good, or devils and,demons, forces for evil. The powers that they held were occasionally granted to mere men and women. More often though, in the legends and stories, it was the forces for evil that gave out these powers. Mortals receiving these powers, at various times, became known as witches and warlocks, sorcerers and sorceresses, magicians or mathematicians, while the art they practiced was called witchcraft, sorcery, magic or science. | Page 88 missing in original.
