Te cult of the mother Earth and house remedies were questioned in the times when the Supreme Tribunal of the Holy Inquisition would declare all this alternative sciences as crime and would pursue them.

Many traditional folk songs reflect this times, like this one: “Plou i fa sol les bruixes es pentinen, plou i fa sol les bruixes van de dol”. (It rains and it’s sunny, the withes comb their hair, it rains and it’s sunny, the witches are dressed in duel.”)
