The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Grimassi

DEFINITIONS

Grimassi, Raven: Raven Grimassi is a Neo-Pagan scholar and award-winning author of over twelve books on Witchcraft, Wicca, and Neo-Paganism. He is a member of the American Folk Lore Society and is co-founder and co-director of the College of the Crossroads.

Raven's background includes training in the Rosicrucian Order as well as the study of the Kabbalah through the First Temple of Tifareth under Lady Sara Cunningham. His early magical career began in the late 1960s and involved the study of works by Franz Bardon, Eliphas Levi, William Barrett, Dion Fortune, William Gray, William Butler, and Israel Regardie.

Today Raven is the directing Elder of the tradition of Aridian Witchcraft, and together with his wife Stephanie Taylor he is developing a complete teaching system known as Ash, Birch and Willow. This system is the culmination of over 35 years of study and practice in the magical and spiritual traditions of the indigenous people of pre-Christian Europe.

He is the author of Italian Witchcraft, Crafting Wiccan Traditions, The Cauldron of Memory, Witchcraft: A Mystery Tradition, Spirit of the Witch, The Witch's Familiar, The Witches' Craft, Wiccan Magick, The Wiccan Mysteries, Beltane, Encyclopedia of Wicca & Witchcraft, and Hereditary Witchcraft. He is also the co-creator of The Hidden Path and The Well Worn Path.
