considered evil. During this time, the hat became associated with the horns of the devil and anyone wearing one was considered a follower of Satan.
By the Victorian era, artists had made the image of the old crone wearing a witch's hat the norm. Witches wearing the tall, black-brimmed hat were depicted flying on their brooms in the dead of night, or standing over a cauldron casting spells with a black cat somewhere in the picture.
