Witchcraft’s great secret stems from the fact that few people understand its true essence. Here’s the book that explains how Wicca, the religion of witchcraft, came into existence. A detailed discussion of witchcraft’s origins begins with accounts from ancient civilizations, then progresses forward to describe present-day manifestations of the art. Although witches and witchcraft are a part of popular culture and favorite subjects in film and TV, this spiritual movement’s true history should not be confused with tales of wart-nosed hags who fly through the night on broomsticks. This history of witchcraft includes: Witchcraft in Judea during the reign of King Solomon . . . Medea and Circe, legendary witches of ancient Greece . . . The place of witchcraft among barbarian tribes in ancient northern Europe . . . The seventeenth-century New England trials of the witches of Salem . . . Gerald Gardner and the birth of modern Wicca as a nature religion . . . Witchcraft as it is taught and practiced today. This book points out how modern witchcraft has evolved into a benevolent religion, a spiritual expression of feminism, and a practice that encourages reverence toward nature. More than 200 full-color illustrations enhance an intensely readable text.

It doesn’t presume anything, so far as it appears, but gives sometimes several theories about the missing facts in history. I noticed a few errors in the typing, grammar marks and such, but as I was so enraptured by the reading I gave hardly a thought to them. Stunning, extremely high…
