Why We Chose Our Name....

Enchantment Defined
Webster's 1913 Dictionary
Definition: \En*chant"ment\, n. [F. enchantement.]
1. The act of enchanting; the production of certain wonderful effects by the aid of spirits; the use of magic arts, spells, or charms; incantation.

2. The effect produced by the act; the state of being enchanted; as, to break an enchantment.

3. That which captivates the heart and senses; an influence or power which fascinates or highly delights.

Syn: Incantation; necromancy; magic; sorcery; witchcraft; spell; charm; fascination; witchery.

"The soul has an absolute, unforgiving need for excursions into enchantment. It requires them like the body needs food and the mind needs thought. Yet our culture often takes pride in disproving and exploding the sources of enchantment, explaining away one mystery after another and overturning precious shrines, dissolving the family farm that has housed spirits of civility for eons, or desecrating for material profit a mountain or stream sacred to native residents. We have yet to learn that we can't survive without enchantment and that the loss is killing us."
Thomas Moore - The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life

FAIRY, n.

A creature, variously fashioned and endowed, that formerly inhabited the meadows and forests. It was nocturnal in its habits, and somewhat addicted to dancing and the theft of children. The fairies are now believed by naturalist to be extinct, though a clergyman of the Church of England saw three near Colchester as lately as 1855, while passing through a park after dining with the lord of the manor. The sight greatly staggered him, and he was so affected that his account of it was incoherent.

In the year 1807 a troop of fairies visited a wood near Aix and carried off the daughter of a peasant, who had been seen to enter it with a bundle of clothing. The son of a wealthy bourgeois disappeared about the same time, but afterward returned. He had seen the abduction been in pursuit of the fairies.

Justinian Gaux, a writer of the 14th-century, charges that so great is the fairies' power of transformation that he saw one change itself into two opposing armies and fight a battle with great slaughter, and that the next day, after it had resumed its original shape and gone away, there were seven hundred bodies of the slain which the villagers had to bury. He does not say if any of the wounded recovered.

In the time of Henry III, of England, a law was made which prescribed the death penalty for "Kyllynge, wowndynge, or mamynge" a fairy, and it was universally respected.
