Wicca Magickal Beginnings, Sorita DEste, David Rankine
Did Gerald Gardner invent the Wiccan tradition? Is it a survival of something much older? This amazing new book from esoteric researchers Sorita dEste and David Rankine sets aside the endless debates about initiatory lineage and instead focuses on the history of the key practices such as initiation, magick circles, ritual tools, Books of Shadows and Drawing Down the Moon. They provide the reader with evidence illustrating how nearly all the key rituals have antecedents thousands of years prior to the public emergence of the Wicca in 1950s England. Already being described as a classic Wiccan textbook by many practitioners!
