Paganism & Wicca - What Is A Chervioburgium?

This name literally means "cauldron bearer for a witch," and it was one of the titles used by the Franks to describe a male magical practitioner and/or Pagan religious believer. 

Herburgius, "one who carries the cauldron to witches' meetings," and Strioportius, "witch's porter," are two more synonyms. 

These were meant to be insults, despite the fact that they seem neutral nowadays. 

Suggestions that the males serviced female witches were deemed more demeaning than suggestions that they were magical practitioners themselves.
