There is also the oral tradition of witchcraft, some practicioners claim to have a family history of witches going back to pre-christian times. How much of this is true and how much a 19th Century invention is anyone's guess.

There certainly seems to be something which has remained in the collective memory of western europeans in spite of over 1500 years of Christianity.
