Overview

The most comprehensive and revealing work on the practices, rituals and beliefs of modern witchcraft since Gerald Gardner's influential but unpublished 'Book of Shadows' triggered the revival movement in the 1950s. The authors explain what Gardner's text actually was, how he used it, and, as far as possible, what his sources were. The book goes on to give in full the first, second and third degree initiation rites, the consecration rites, and the many non-ritual passages of the 'Book of Shadows'. The rest of the book explains what the Craft is all about, covering everything from the rationale of witchcraft to reincarnation; from ethics to sex; from symbolism to spells; from astral projection to psychic healing; from clairvoyance to witchcraft's place in today's world.
