Paganism & Wicca - Who Is A Koldun Or Koldun'ia Or Kolduny?

Koldun/Koldun'ia/Kolduny (m/f/pl): Are the Russian terms for "witch." 


  • The koldun, often known as a village witch or magician, is a local practitioner. 
  • Russian parish priests are instructed in the sixteenth century to find “women fortune-tellers and kolduny” and bring them over to secular legal authorities. 
  • The word is frequently used as a derogatory term and is generally used in a negative context. 
  • Kolduny are often depicted as dark, depressed, lonely practitioners with spoiling abilities.
