4.0 out of 5 stars A Gem for Wiccans, 19 Dec 2008
This review is from: The Rebirth of Witchcraft (Paperback)
"The Rebirth of Witchcraft" is one of the most important, and perhaps best, books about the history of the neopagan religion of Wicca. Doreen Valiente is, after Gerald Gardner, the most important figure in Wiccan history - she was a High Priestess of the Gardnerian Bricket Wood coven, and was also a member of Cochrane's Clan of Tubal Cain coven. She helped to rewrite the Charge of the Goddess, probably the most sacred scripture of Wiccans, and played a part in uniting the Neopagan groups through the Pagan Federation, and also, along with the Farrars, helped to open Wicca up into becoming a public religion and no longer simply a mystery cult.

This book, her fifth and final, is a history of Wicca (or "Witchcraft" as she called it, she disliked the term "Wicca", which was introduced in 1966 by June Johns in her biography of Alex Sanders). This history is not quite as long and detailed as several others by professional historians (such as "Triumph of the Moon" by Ronald Hutton), but it is very easy to read, and is written by a person who was actually there!
