Beside the fact that this word ‘white magic’ does not exist in the contemporary Polish — it has a meaning in the interpretation itself namely it was considered as a broad category (to the end of the 19th century) which included the elements associated with the medicine and the religion. The above mentioned topic (the white craft) was analysed as a matter of the investigation of how it was extinct this ‘white lore’. It was stated that the first indication of the white magic was recorded scarcely in the 18th century. The category of the topic was prevalent starting from the ancient Polish language. The onset of it's elements and features characterized the measures of the pagan provenances. By and by to this ‘white way of life’ were introduced the names of the exorcisms.
