Wicca: Charms, Potions and Lore

Author: Nixie Vale Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/03/2020

Religion, spiritual practice, a moral code for living, the means to enhance and take control of your life: Wicca can be all of these things. Many misunderstand what it means to follow Wicca; yes it can involve 'magic' and the worship of the Horned God (along with the equally important Triple Goddess), but it is also a beautiful, life-enhancing way of living that venerates the cycles of nature and the seasons and promotes positive and constructive values. It is a relatively modern faith, dating back to the early twentieth century, and yet it draws on ancient beliefs grounded in nature. This unique and illuminating book will introduce you to the wonders of Wicca. Covering everything from the Wiccan deities and calendar to getting started with spellwork, natural healing and divination, and accompanied by magical and stunning contemporary artwork, this book will bewitch and enlighten you.

A History of Magic and Witchcraft Sabbats, Satan and Superstitions in the West

A History of Magic and Witchcraft Sabbats, Satan and Superstitions in the West

Author: Frances Timbers Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/02/2020

Broomsticks and cauldrons, familiars and spells: magic and witchcraft conjures a vivid picture in our modern-day imagination. While much of our understanding is rooted in superstition and myth, the history of magic and witchcraft offers a window into the past. It illuminates the lives of ordinary people in the past and shines a light on the fascinating pop culture of the premodern world. Blowing away folkloric cobwebs, this enlightening new history dispels many of the misconceptions surrounding witchcraft and magic that we still hold today. From Ancient Greece and Rome through to the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Era, historian Frances Timbers shines a light on the impact of Christianity and popular culture in the construction of the figure of the witch'. The development of demonology and ceremonial magic is brought together with the West's troubled past with magic and witchcraft to chart the birth of modern Wiccan and Neopagan movements in England and North America. Witchcraft is a metaphor for oppression in an age in which persecution is an everyday occurrence somewhere in the world. Fanaticism, intolerance, prejudice, authoritarianism, and religious and political ideologies are never attractive. Beware the witch hunter!
