The "Medieval Witches" one should be "post-reformation protestant witches" as historically witch hunts did not happen during the Middle Age but only after the reformation and primarily by extremist protestant sects in isolated areas of the North American colonies.

The witch trials were established by the (until then only catholic) church after the black plague, also called pest, because the church and nobles ran out of workforce. Many of the women called «witches» were prosecuted because they were the sage or herb women, to which women turned to avoid or terminate pregnancies. Due to their knowledge about nature, herbs, plants, fruits, etc., they were also able to cure diseases more often than the priests with their prayers. There are books about «the destruction of the wise women» that explain this in detail.

Of course, for every movement, there will soon be blind followers who pursue the «holy cause» with fanaticism, from the French, national-socialist or communist revolutions to feminism or pro/anti civil rights movements, others uses the tool of witch trials to eliminate economic or political rivals (or the more beautiful carpenter's daughter) and some were simply motivated by the incentive system (1/3 of the sinner's possession to the one who rats out the sinner, 2/3 to holy mother church). Initially, though, the church was simple in need of more workforce and had to eridicate the knowledge about abortion practices quickly. What people are not aware of is that at that time, the crown owned about 6% of the land, but the church 22%. More people, if educated properly in blind devotion without asking questions, also meant more donations even from the poorest of people.

Ever heard of the Malleus Maleficarum or la Santa Inquisición? Unfortunately and although one might think so when looking at the country today, the North American colonies were neither the first nor the only places were witch hunts were used to maintain a small elite in power by preventing them from forming their own thoughts.
