Current knowledge of the true history of modern Wicca has evolved over the decades, from its mythic origins to supposed "debunkings." Now, the founder of Britain's The Cauldron, a Pagan journal that began in 1974, reveals the true history of Wicca and its direct links to pre-Gardnerian Witchcraft, including the Clan of Tubal
Cain, the Coven of Atho, and the Pickingill Craft.
This new book focuses on the lives of people who have made Wicca what it is today. Included is an in-depth look at Gerald Gardner's life and how his vision of Wicca developed. You'll also learn about other important figures in the development of the Craft, including Alex Saunders, Aleister Crowley, Ray Buckland, Doreen Valiente,
Fresh and lively, accessible and intelligent, this is the most complete look at the origin and development of Wicca. It's a must for Pagans, historians, and anyone interested in the world's fastest-growing religion.
