The White Goddess: a Historical Grammar of Poetic Myth by Robert Graves,
1948. Farrar, Straus, & Giroux trade paperback. ISBN: 0844659835 Synopsis: A rather weighty and yet poetic book, tracing the female
deity of Witchcraft - Goddess of Birth, Love, and Death; of the New, Full,
and Old Moon, worshipped under countless titles. A speculative, mythic
history of poetry as religion, touching on Celtic mythology and themes such
as the Ogham tree alphabet and the Lunar Muse in her various aspects of
maiden, mother and crone. Helped popularize many Goddesses such as Brigid
and Cerridwen, enriching modern Neo-Paganism. Fascinating for the advanced
student. Know your Celtic mythology (particularly Welsh) before you start,
The Book of Druidry: History, Sites and Wisdom by Ross Nichols, John
Matthews, Philip Carr-Gomm (Editor), List: $19.00 Amazon Price: $15.20, You
Save: $3.80 (20%), Reprint Edition 320 pages, Thorsons Pub, 1992, ISBN:
1855381672 Synopsis: The most comprehensive survey of Druidry available, from
their earliest history to the current renaissance--including a study of the
shaping of their ideas, their principal deities and myths, their learning
and social organization, and more. Druidry from A to Z! The Book of
Druidry was essentially the life work of the author (published
posthumously) and represents a maximum attempt to catalogue and share the
collective of what we know about the ancient Druids. It reads somewhat like
an encyclopedia or almanac with the reader able to look-up items of
particular interest (e.g. sacred sites such as Stonehenge) or read
straight-through, cover-to-cover. Given the number of bogus (revisionist)
works in print purporting to inform us about Druidry or druidism (as it is
sometimes also called), some of which claim access to secret or otherwise
sacred texts, etc. (which is complete bull-manure), enough cannot be said
about a work like this which has both scholarly merit and general appeal.

Ecstasies : Deciphering the Witches' Sabbath by Carlo Ginzburg, Raymond
Rosenthal (Translator), Reprint Edition, Penguin USA (Paper), 1993, ISBN:
0140158588 Synopsis: Ecstasies is the culmination of Ginzburg's longstanding
fascination with popular myths that are shared across different cultures and
eras. Here he follows the accounts given by those accused of witchcraft
centuries ago, gradually weaving them together into a startling pattern,
revealing evidence of a hidden shamanistic culture that flourished across
Europe for millennia. Photographs and maps.
The Night Battles : Witchcraft and Agrarian Cults in the Sixteenth and
Seventeenth Centuries by Carlo Ginzburg, Anne Tedeschi (Translator),
List: $15.95 Amazon Price: $15.95, Reprint Edition, Penguin USA (Paper),
1992, ISBN: 0801843863 Synopsis: An important book in the historiography of witchcraft.
Ginzburg's research on the benandanti was path-breaking when it first
appeared in the 1960's. It has become a classic, a required read for any
student of history who is interested in the topic of the early modern
European witch hunts. Ginzburg reconstructs a narrative in which the notion
of what it was to be a "witch" was fundamentally changed by the Friulian
peasants' encounters with the Inquisition.

Crafting the Art of Magic, Book I: A History of Modern Witchcraft
1939-1964, by Aidan A. Kelly, (St Paul MN: Llewellyn, 1991).ISBN: 0875423701 Synopsis: A historical examination of published works and papers,
asserting that Gerald Gardner pieced together the modern Wiccan book of
shadows from sources such as Margaret Murray, Leland's Aradia,
ceremonial magick and a dash of Crowley, actively promoting a Wiccan
mythology under which this was "the old religion." This thesis traces
virtually ALL of modern Wicca to Gerald Gardner.
The Pagan Religions of the Ancient British Isles: Their Nature and Legacy
by Ronald Hutton, (Oxford: Blackwell, 1991); ISBN: 0631189467 Synopsis: Examines the pagan religions of the ancient British isles
with an academic eye, touching on archaeological and other evidence often
used to support mythological claims of Wicca. Notes the many ambiguities of
examining such evidence, touching on key ideas and authors such as Frazer,
Gimbutas, Graves, Murray, et al, from an academic perspective. A strong and
compassionate academic analysis.
The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion by Sir James Frazer,
1890. ISBN: 0140189319 Synopsis: A Victorian folklorist and early anthropologist, Frazer
helped popularize the notions of European "fire festivals" and the "dying
god" of vegetation, which strongly influence modern Neo-Paganism. His
methodology is now outdated, but his theories of magic are largely carried
down to the present day. Available in several editions.
Sex in History by Reay Tannahill, Stein & Day trade paperback; ISBN:
0812885406 Synopsis: It has often been said that Witchcraft grew out of an
earlier 'fertility religion' and, although 'fertility' is probably the wrong
word here, it is undeniable that the history of Witchcraft is irrevocably
bound up with the history of sexuality. Like Tantrists and many others in
the East, Witches tend to view sex as sacramental. Since this is quite
contrary to the prevailing attitudes of our own culture, it may be helpful
to understand how our culture acquired such negative ideas about sex in the
first place. Ms. Tannahill's unique landmark study will not only answer this
question but also indicate the many options other cultures throughout
history have chosen.
When God Was A Woman by Merlin Stone. Harcourt, Brace, & Jovanovich
trade paperback. ISBN=015696158X Synopsis: At the foundations of the religion of Witchcraft is the
religion of the Goddess. Ms. Stone's book is an archeological tour-de-force
of that religion, which is found at the beginnings of virtually every known
culture (yes, even the Judeo-Christian culture). In this book, one learns
about the worship of Astarte, Isis, Ishtar, and many others. Also
recommended is her Ancient Mirrors of Womanhood. Both are
The Way of Wyrd by Brian Bates. Harper & Row hardback, ISBN=0062500848 Synopsis: What Carlos Castaneda did for Native American tradition,
this author does for ancient Pagan Anglo-Saxon tradition. Subtitled The
Book of a Sorcerer's Apprentice
and based on authentic manuscripts found in the British Museum, it is the
chronicle of a young Christian monk sent into the wilds beyond Mercia in 674
to record the heresies (beliefs) of the Pagans. He is lucky to have as his
guide the Anglo-Saxon shaman, Wolf. Throughout this documentary novel, the
Christian and Pagan beliefs are juxtaposed for a better understanding of
both. Not since The Mists of Avalon has a book accomplished
this task so neatly.
