 Cult of Herodias - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Cult of Herodias, in medieval folklore, was a coven of witches worshipping the Roman goddess Diana and the Biblical character Herodias.
Fables of this cult began to spread sometime before the 10th century, were denounced by the Catholic Church as superstition or diabolical deception, and had largely died out by the time of the Reformation.
Among some modern Wiccans, Herodias is called Aradia, a corruption of the original name, due principally to the fact that in Late Latin and Italian the "h" is mute.
