The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Quest

DEFINITIONS

Quest:

A test or requirement used given to someone seeking to join a coven or magickal group to see if they have the discipline to learn a lesson or perform a task. If they show the determination and discipline to complete the quest, it implies that the person will complete their training so the magickal order or coven doesn’t waste time training someone only to have that person leave before completing the training. Assigning such a quest is not currently popular.
