Term: Alex Sanders

DEFINITION:
Born in 1916 and died in 1988, Sanders became an important figure in the rebirth of Witchcraft during the last quarter of the twentieth century. This was due to a popular book written about him, King of the Witches by June Johns, and his frequent appearances in the popular media. His claim to being initiated into Witchcraft by his grandmother is still considered controversial, and some would say that his style of Witchcraft, known as “Alexandrian” (a clever play of words on his name) seems to be a combination of the system of Gerald Gardner (“Gardnerian Witchcraft”) and ceremonial magick. He began to introduce more of the idea of trance into Witchcraft, but it was later Pagans who followed in this path. He is survived by his wife, Maxine who, on occasion, still gives lectures.
