Ok, so... A bit of a back story... I get on the internet a lot, I met a girl, fell in love with her, and have known since pretty much the outset that she is a Wiccan... Now, up until this point, what I thought of as Wicca was, in fact, neo-wicca. Well, I have done a bit of research since that time, and learned that Wicca is not something that was invented in the last century. But, more to the point, I want to know more about her religion; it is something that is important to Me. I may be a Christian, but her religion is as important to her as Mine is to Me.

Well, anywho, before I get more confuddled, I was wondering if there is anyone out there so kind as to help a guy find some books to learn more about the older form of Wicca.

And, now, having typed that, looked at it, and thinking it looks like a mess. I would like to apologize for the composition of My first post on this site, as well as any mistakes or misinformation that I may have in My post.

Be well All and thank You muchly,

Mingan (P.S. Also, sorry about the caps on You Me Mine etc... It's a habit.)

Wicca is a new religion. The term "Neo-Wicca" is used to help distinguish between original Wicca (that invented by Gerald Gardner, also sometimes called British Traditional Witchcraft) and the various modern day offshoots that often look very, very different from Gardner's Wicca.

We might be able to point you towards more reading material about the various traditions of Wicca, but I'd think the best way to learn about your girl's religion is to ask her. What sort of Wicca does she practice? What does it mean to her?

Ah, Alrighty then. I shall do talk with her about it.

Thank you again.

This is the first site I found on Wicca and is still one of the most informative, I feel. There are a bunch of books to recommend too. For a general overview of Wicca, there are a few chapters in Margot Adler's Drawing Down the Moon that are very helpful.

Also, I wanted to apologize - I reread my first reply to you and realized it may have come off a little short. My fault for being on the boards while I'm tired. Smiley I think it's commendable that you want to look so much into your significant other's religion, and I hope learning about hers (and vice versa) helps bring you two closer together.

It's ok. We all get tired sometimes. And thank you for your well wishes and compliment.
