Like many of you reading this, I have my own library. Because I have been collecting occult books and manuscripts for over half a century, my library has gotten so large that at times it is difficult to find information I need. That is why Hereditary Witchcraft by Raven Grimassi is such an invaluable tool. No longer do I have to go through old volumes to find a bit here or a sentence there. Grimassi has done all the hard work for us. It's great to have all of this information on hand!
Grimassi has traced the sources of an amazing number of beliefs and practices. In an age where cynicism and doubt are rampant, it is great to have references so you can identify the antiquity of what you do and believe.
You could say that this is a book for scholars, because the scholarship in this book is impeccable. But this book is far more! It is a living, breathing document showing how Wicca has evolved over the centuries. It also shows how you can practice the "Old Ways" of Witchcraft, even if you are not near a coven. In this book you will learn important rites and rituals that you can perform in private.
The magical techniques and information here are wonderful. Grimassi shares his knowledge of the magick of the stars. He also shares the secrets of the Tuscan Runes and how you can use them for divination. For the first time this information becomes something practical that you can use!
Expert scholarship combined with an easy writing style and practical information makes this a usable resource that you simply must have. If you don't have a copy you should get one right away. The greater depth of your knowledge of Witchcraft lore and techniques will be your reward.

Popular opinion would have us believe that, by default, a saint would be against such liberal sexuality, but then again, just because an opinion is popular doesn't mean that it's true.
