Kieckhefer (1989: 1997) provides in-depth studies of various instances of scientific, philosophical, and moralist attempts to tackle the question of magic, yet its female practitioners were invariably called witches or magicians, and the stories of the prosecution of those meddling with magic give the names of witches, sorcerers, necromancers, leeches, divinators, demonologists, astrologers, or chiromancers, yet the concept of the enchantress seems to be reserved to, or at least strongly claimed by, literary texts.
