In pre-Christian and early Christian times, Witchcraft (with a capital "W") was a magical and healing practice associated with the pagan religion. Good witches were pretty much the norm. The very word "Witch" comes from the Old Anglo-Saxon wicce or wicca, meaning a "wise one;" the wiser of the common people having knowledge of herbs, healing, augury, and magic.

This book is amazingly complete. The book contains a large amount of history of the burning times. Most of the information in the book is backed by the history behind it. The other thing that I have never seen any book even get close to is the amazing amount of pictures and illustrations.

THE WITCH BOOK is truly an encyclopedia of Wicca and Witchcraft! Vast in scope, with over 600+ pages of important and exciting information. Dr. Buckland has over 50 years of experience in practicing actual witchcraft and practical magick. Forget all other imitations! This is truly a modern masterpiece by a modern master!

I am very glad I bought this encyclopedia instead of The New Encyclopedia of the Occult by John Michael Greer (which I have stumbled upon in my college's library) and I love it! The only down side for me was the pages start to get out of order starting on page 345 (?). I'm not sure if that is how it is supposed to be formatted but it looks like a mistake in printing. However, it is what's on the inside that counts, right? The book has a plethora of information about anything occult related and holds many illustrations and pictures that accompanies the text. This book even mentions movies and shows that are witchy (for ex. The Blair Witch Project, Sabrina the teenage witch, Rosemary's baby) and briefly explains them. Overall, a good find and a good buy!
