About The Book
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. But during the last 1,000 years, Witchcraft and paganism received much bad press. With 560 entries, a resource section, and 114 photos and illustrations, this is an exhaustive A-to-Z exploration of people, places, events, literature, and other matters related to this ever-timely and popular topic. It defines both the darker Christian concept and the true concept of Wicca, concentrating on the Western European and later New World versions of Witchcraft and magic. From Abracadabra to Aleister Crowley to Gardnerian Witchcraft to Rosemary’s Baby to sorcery and Zoroastra, The Witch Book is unmatched in its coverage of witchcraft’s historical, practical, and cultural aspects.
