Encyclopedia of Witches, Witchcraft, and Wicca

by Rosemary Ellen Guiley

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Guiley (The Encyclopedia of Saints) has revised this essential lexicon in response to Wicca's rise in popularity and recent acceptance as an organized religion. Spanning centuries and continents, the book defines 480 of witchcraft's and wizardry's major historical events, figures, tools, sites, symbols, and abstract terms. The highly engaging, alphabetically organized entries run several paragraphs in length and deftly clarify a term's etymology as well as its spiritual, historical, or spell-making significance. A nice complement to Lexa Rosean's The Encyclopedia of Magickal Ingredients(2005); recommended for Wiccan, religious studies, and occult collections.
