I would like to know where I can find some sources on Wraiths in occultism. I read that specifically a Wraith is a human ghost from a sorcerer who practiced dark magic (and possibly revived themselves with magic or alchemy). I’ve always been fascinated by the Wraith as an archetype but I haven’t found much on ghosts in occultism outside of necromancy.
The two questions I have is:
- Do Wraiths actually appear in any form of Western occult practices (not just in Scottish folklore)? And;
- Can one become a Wraith (even temporarily) through necromancy or another dark art?
Thanks for reading, and any replies in advance.
