Simply put, the Encyclopedia of Wicca & Witchcraft by Raven Grimassi is the most complete reference on ancient and modern Witchcraft and associated fields ever published, covering everything from "Adept" to "Zell-Ravenheart." Each entry is carefully researched, well thought-out, and surprisingly thorough. If you want to do any research on the "Craft of the Wise," this is now the place to start.

The book is filled with 300 photos and illustrations. The topics are wide and varied:

Theology: You'll find a listing of many pantheons and groups. For example, Starhawk's "Reclaiming" tradition is fully described. You'll also learn about the New Wiccan Church International, and many others.

History: Throughout this book you'll learn about the founders and predecessors of the Craft. You'll also see how it developed in many different directions simultaneously.

Sites: Real places in modern times, such as Mother Rest Sacred Grove, and important places in ancient times such as Lake Nemi are fully described.

Herbs: Numerous herbs are described according to their traditional lore. Of great value to you will be the herbal code, which reveals the true names of herbs used in spells. "Brains" was the congealed gum from a cherry tree. "Bat's Wing" was the holly leaf.

Verses: Including the Charge of the Goddess, the Myth of the Descent of the Goddess, Drawing Down the Moon, the Great Rite Invocation, and more.

Ritual Objects: Everything from Altars to the Witches' Ladder is described.

Personalities: Biographies of some of the most famous people involved with the history of Wicca are included. You'll not only enjoy discovering their history, but many have photos so you can see what they look like. You'll enjoy reading about Margo Adler, Herman Slater, Kathryn Campbell, Scott Cunningham, Gerald Gardner, Sybil Leek, Margaret Murray, and others.

Not enough for you? Also included is a list of 175 publications oriented toward Witchcraft. Still not enough? You will also find a listing of more than thirty Pagan organizations. More? How about twenty shops and mail-order merchants so you can get your supplies no matter where you live. And a bibliography of over 170 important references.

So why would you want this Encyclopedia of Wicca & Witchcraft when there are a few other books that claim to cover the same material? There is one main reason: This is the only book of its type written by a person who has been practicing for over 25 years. He has known or communicated with many of the important people of Wicca during its most explosive period of growth, the last quarter century. In this book you will find more accurate information on such things as magickal alphabets, runes, correspondences, and symbols than in any other book.

If you practice any form of Wicca or Witchcraft, or if you are merely interested in the subject, this is now the book you must have.



Because birds seem so common and exist everywhere, we often take them for granted and even consider them part of the landscape. However, these wonderful creatures can provide us with a simple yet powerful way to stay in tune with the natural world and its seasonal markers. In addition to maintaining this connection, birds can help us access... read this article
