The Wizard Hat in the Wizard of Oz

Before the 15th century, the steeple hats were only worn by the Puritans and the Welsh, and gradually became women’s fashion item called “Hennin” later. This trend began in London only at first, and then gradually was spread to other cities in Europe. But when the countryside began to wear the hat, the hat had been out of date in urban area. Therefore, the unban residents started to call the countryside “pagan” who wore clothes that was out of date. The steeple hat accordingly became a symbol of the “pagan”. Many of them were herbalists and females. These women generally knew how to grow herbs and had a good master of natural phenomena (in fact, it is common sense of agriculture). They were called “wise woman”. The hat was thus connected to this group. At the same period, church considered that the steeple hat was related to devil’s horn, so it was opposed by believers. In 1798, the painter Goya first connected the steeple hat and the wizard in his work “Witches in the Air”. In the Victorian era, many fairy tales and picture books began to describe a witch with a “black high-cone cap”. Until modern times, the hat itself becomes a symbol for identifying witches or wizards.
