Powerful Traditions: The Gardnerian Book of Shadows

A "Book of Shadows" refers to the sacred text of any given Coven, Religion or Cult. Generally the original is hand-written and is often in some sort of code or cypher. This is the Book of Shadows by Gerald Gardner and is considered the crntral text of Wicca. Gardner attributed his book to an ancient, clandestine cult in which he claims to have been initiated. The text shows influences from Celtic folklore, the Enochian system, Thelema, the Golden Dawn, Italian Witchcraft (Stregaria), Tantric Yoga and more. It is a powerful book, steeped in ancient tradition.

So much so, that portions even retain Kelly's notations. People need to learn that just because something is available on the internet it is not necessarily "public domain". If you are interested in this book, I suggest at a minimum you check out sacred-texts [dot] com/pag/gbos.

Spend the money on a book by Cunningham or Patricia Telesco or Starhawk OR Z Budapest but this book is a ripoff. Don't waste your money.

This is the quintessential source for Gardnerian Witchcraft upon which many newer works are modelled. Gerald Gardner is considered by many to be the father of modern Witchcraft, so I would say this work is to be heeded. Those who think not do not know what it is.
