    One thought on “The Meaning of Witchcraft”

    1. I'm very glad that I finally had the chance to read through this book in its entirety. While I had heard a lot about Gerald Gardner from other witches, I had avoided his works as I hate to be a "band wagon" person. Needless t say, not having a coven to call my own, I've finally gone without hearing "Gardner this" or "Gardner that" long enough to feel like I'm not following the crowd reading it. He makes some very solid arguments against the false ideas of what witchcraft is and is not. He's also [...]

    2. Every witch should read this to understand the roots of modern witchcraft and Wicca, but it's not a well-written book. I first groaned at the whole "Black Mass" material in it, but I did learn a few things as a result of that which I didn't know. Goes to show you the discrediting has been going on forever, too. Add it to your list as a bathroom or doctor's office reader because you really should read it, but it's probably not going to be quick.

    3. Apparently a groundbreaking work, published in the 1950's and pioneering a pro-Wicca agenda, this book does a lot to advance knowledge of the history of witchcraft, based on the evidence available. The author is a member of a British coven that is said to have ties to generations of practitioners, but linking modern witchcraft to the traditions of the ancients is a more complicated story. The author does a good job, in a wide ranging style, and even though it seemed like he wandered a lot, I did [...]

    4. Gardner wasn't called the "Grand Old Man of Witchcraft" for nothing. I was long overdue for reading any of his work. His writing style is very readable. Tons of history - he DID do his research. Skimmed over the chapters on "Some Allegations Examined". Gardner looks at some sensationalist newspaper stories and tears them apart. I've read too much of the similar (and some of the same stories) in other early witchcraft books.

    5. He did a great job at the time making Wicca public, but the book (all his books in fact) is not specially brilliant. He repeats the same facts over and over and makes up information with the excuse of "just because there is no evidence doesn't mean it didn't happen".
