Greetings!

The 1665 3rd Edition of Reginald Scot's Discoverie of Witchcraft has 
Appendices that are not by Scot which were influential on British 
magical practice down into the 19th Century.  A woodcut shows magicians 
in front of a volcano. The image is to be drawn outside the magic circle 
in a ceremony to obtain an infernal familiar. Elsewhere there are 
references to volcanos near Iceland where fiery and aerial spirits meet 
to fight.

Basically people saw volcanos and thought they were probably looking at 
infernal regions touching the material world.

There are also references to the troublesome spirits found in caves and 
mines, which were likewise seen as gateways into other realms points of 
ingress for denizens of these other realms.

Incidentally I have reprinted these appendices, details can be found on 
my website below.

My best wishes

Ben
