The Witchcraft reading list
Here are some books that I think are good, and valuable, interesting and helpful!
The Element Encyclopedia of Witchcraft – Judika Illes
Judika Illes is also the author of one of my other favourite books – the Encyclopedia of 5000 spells/. She’s a really excellent writer, historian and practising witch who has a multifaceted and complex understanding of ethics in magick. This book is fascinating and a really good grounding in all sorts of magickal traditions.
The Green Witch – Arin Murphy Hiscock
This is a good grounding in herbal witchcraft and the magickal uses of herbs and essential oils
The Spiral Dance -Starhawk
This is an excellent and very important book in the resurgence of witchcraft as a feminist act. Everyone who calls themselves a witch should try and read this in my opinion!
The Triumph of the Moon – Ronald Hutton
This is slightly more of an academic book than instructional, or how-to, but it is an excellent one. This review is pretty accurate: ‘looks at the emergence of contemporary Pagan religions, and how they not only evolved from the Pagan societies of the past, but also owe heavily to 19th-century poets and scholars. Despite his status as a scholar, Hutton’s breezy wit makes this a refreshing read, and you’ll learn far more than you ever expected to about today’s Pagan religions.’
Witchcraft for tomorrow – Doreen Valiente
Valiente is one of the founders of modern Wicca – a witchcraft religion – and in this book she gives instruction on all sorts of practical issues. A worthwhile read if you’re even vaguely interested in Wicca.
Apocalyptic Witchcraft – Peter Grey.
This is a wonderfully weird, interesting, political and powerful book. Difficult to describe, it is more manifesto than instruction, more inspiration than history. True witchcraft in written form. (All of the publications from the Scarlet Imprint are fascinating).
