The Bruxa de Évora & The Witches in History Ritual Series
the bruja.png

“Once upon a time, there was the powerful Witch of Évora who conquered and terrorized generations of Luso-Brazilian hearts for centuries and who had a notebook full of potions, spells, witchcraft, enchantments, baths and prayers. Her fame crossed chronological and physical barriers and arrived in Brazil with Portuguese navigators… Her magic created roots and ramifications intertwining with Amerindian religions.”

-Maria Helena Farelli, Bruxa de Evora

Each week The Cauldron Black will focus on a different witch in history, under the guidance and tutelage of the stereotypical and archetypal witch - the Bruxa de Évora
