Historical Background

An Esbat is a meeting of a Pagan or Wiccan sect (sometimes called a witches' coven) occurring during the full moon. These meetings were to discuss religious matters as opposed to celebrations (which sabbats were for) and cast spells as well.

Esbat was a term invented in the 20th century, evidently derived from the French word ébat (which was esbat in Old French), which means "frolic" or "romp" (which has sexual connotations). That term dates to the witch trials of the Middle Ages which was a term used to describe the behavior witches engaged in while worshiping the Devil (i.e. having sex with the Devil). Evidently, the Pagans which coined the word were not aware of its history, only that it resembled sabbat (esbat & sabbat both have the -bat suffix) and could be used to refer to another Pagan gathering.
