Wiccaphobia is the fear of witches and witchcraft. This phobia has a noted historical significance. The phobia is originated from the "Burning Times", lasted from the 14th to the 17th centuries, when witchcraft often result in capital punishment. Despite the religious freedom was granted among pagans and witches, the fear still remains. At present, wiccaphobia is often connected with xenophobia. It is commonly suffered by people who believe in supernatural entities, like a witch.
Since it is a supernatural phobia, wiccaphobia is often treated with the help of spiritual leaders, like a pasteur. It involves telling stories about their own religious and philosophical background, personality and childhood experiences. Therapists can aid in overcoming this phobia as well.
