The White Women
The Divine Witch: Goddesses and Gods
The White Women are spirits who live in German forests where they assist travelers, practice divination, and dance fertility dances. Their exact identity and nature is unclear: they have been variously identified as spirits, lingering ghosts of witches, or goddess-worshipping witches.
Various forest-dwelling female Slavic spirits including the Rusalki and Vila are described as being dressed in white.
