The ritual poetry of Doreen Valiente.
Doreen Valiente, the Mother of Modern Witchcraft, is an acclaimed author in her own right. She rewrote and edited elements of Gerald Gardner's Book of Shadows and is largely responsible for Wicca becoming the fastest growing religion in the western world.
Just before Doreen died on the 1st September 1999, she requested that her poems be published. In this book, for the first time, together with rare photographs of her magical artefacts and memories from friends, is a tribute to a great lady who gave, and still is giving, so much to the Craft.
Excerpt from the Witches Mass in Theban script published for the first time.
