Witchcraft is more than merely collecting crystals, lighting candles, and setting intentions. It isn’t just another avenue for expressing a new spiritual and personal identity. It is also not simply the creative invention of the pioneers of the revival of Witchcraft as is often asserted. At its core, Witchcraft embodies a contemporary priesthood devoted to the veneration of the great Goddess, qualifying it in every sense as a true religion. Its lineage can be traced to European folk practices and Western occult traditions, yet it is also the living reincarnation of Europe's enigmatic ancient mystery cults. In this compelling book, High Priest of Alexandrian Witchcraft Brian Cain delves into the resurgence of modern Witchcraft, charting its evolution over the last century, tracing back to its pre-Christian origins, and venerating its enduring and powerful Gods. Within these pages are unfolded the fabric of time, offering a glimpse behind the veil for the earnest seeker. It is an invitation to discover the inexhaustible cauldron of wisdom, an eternal wellspring for the ardent practitioner that never runs dry.
