Aradia Or the Gospel of the Witches
First published in 1899, Charles Godfrey Leland's ARADIA, OR THE GOSPEL OF THE WITCHES is one of the earliest documentary testaments to the genuine survival of ancient European witchcraft and pagan goddess religion well into the 19th Century, and has become a seminal inspiration for the 20th Century resurrection/reconstruction of magickal beliefs in the modern practices of Wicca and NeoPaganism. This is a must-study volume for contemporary witches who seek to develop a Faith rooted in history and Tradition, rather than just the latest "Wicca 101" fad.
