Thank you :-)

There are a few more respected historical sources you can check out as well. "Drawing Down the Moon"  (Margot Adler) is/was a sort of intro/history of several of the more popular witchcraft-type groups of the early 20th century. And "Triumph of the Moon" by Ronald Hutton is (while still containing the authors personal bias) is a more scholarly look at the recnet history of several groups and practices leading to the development of modern day Wicca.

Just so you know, the more recent accepted ideas about the history of Wicca is that it is based on concepts and ideas developed by Gerald B Gardner in the early part of the 20th century. Most present day Wiccans have learned to sift through the speculations and pseudo history that made up the earlier mythos around the religion, and come to accept the more accurate understandings we have today.

Hey, no need to attack here! Sad

This seems resolved, but for future reference, if you feel you have been attacked, please use the 'report to moderator' function.

If anal prolapse teaches us anything, it's that it is what is inside that counts.
