The identification of men or gods with animals is one of the most common elements of religion and myth. Totemism, in which the members of a social group identify themselves with a particular animal, is a familiar phenomenon. The gods of Egypt, of Greece and Roe, and of the Celts and Teutons were often theriomorphic. The idea is that something may have all the appearances of an animal yet really be a person or god. Though men-beasts appear throughout mythic literature, Harry Levin in the Gates of Horn demonstrates the distinction between great, wild, and holy animals like lions or wolves and tame, weak animals like cats or toads. Witches dominated weak, familiar spirits in the form of domesticated animals; but when they changed their own shapes, they chose the forms of wolves or other fierce animals in order to increase their own powers. This is the origin of the werewolf motif. The werewolf is literally a man-wolf (AS. wer: man). The concept is more Teutonic than Mediterranean, and the Latin gerulphus derives from werewolf. Modern French loup-garou is pleonasm literally meaning “wolf-man-wolf.” The Christian synods and writers of the period condemned pagan religion and pagan magic in the same breath, including sacrifices to the old gods, the veneration of sacred trees, rocks, and springs, and the use of charms and ligatures.
It is also not to be omitted that some wicked women perverted by the devil, seduced by illusions and phantasms of demons, believe and profess themselves, in the hours of night to ride upon certain beasts with Diana, the goddess of the pagans, and an innumerable multitude of women, and in the silence of the dead of night to traverse great spaces of earth and to obey her command as of their mistress, and to be summoned to her service on certain nights.
As chief of a demon horde, Diana can now be equated with Satan, and her followers with worshipers of Satan. In this regard, the further additions of the canon are of great importance. Not only do the women ride out with her, but they obey her as their lady (Domina) as opposed to their true Lord, Jesus Christ (Dominus).
The other important innovation is that the Corrector’s shorter version of the canon calls the leader of the band of riding women “the witch Holda.” Holda is the north German fertility goddess and leader of the wild chase.
