5.0 out of 5 stars A Compelling Masterpiece, 24 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Wiccan Mysteries: Ancient Origins and Teachings (Paperback)
This book is a classic in its field and one that will stand the test of time. Grimassi has artfully blended together the agricultural mysteries of paganism along with the metaphysical principles of ancient occultism. In this book Grimassi ties all the essential elements of pre-Christian European religion into a splendid presentation of Wiccan religious beliefs and practices. He does the same with magical and ritual concepts. His historical research is sound, and is supported in the bibliography, listing over a dozen University press publications along with many other impressive reference works. This alone was a refreshing change of pace from many of the books we see written today on modern Wicca. The Wiccan Mysteries is not a book that you can skim, it requires even a second read in order to fully appreciate the secrets within, otherwise the casual reader is likely to miss what is ultimately revealed in this superb text.
