Wiccan books for beginners

If you are starting to approach to Wiccan culture and worship, probably you are going to need some help to understand what Wiccan religion is. Information about this cult is very wide and extensive, and many times trying to get the right information by ourselves may not be fully effective. Here I will mention some of the most essential books that every Wiccan practitioner must-read. These are the most accurate books about Wiccan tradition and it gathers so far everything you need to know and understand if you want to convert into Wiccan religion.

Although these books don't span every single fact and historical data about the Wiccans, reading them is pretty enough to get aware of everything that this worship means, including rituals, spellings, ways of life, some of the history, recommendations and other affairs. They also help to decide if you are not completely sure about converting yourself to this cult.

Let's take a look at some of these texts.

Margaret Murray - Witch-Cult in Western Europe and the God of the Witches: Margaret Murray was an anthropologist who was one of the main researchers of Wiccan cult and traditions. Although this book was written before the formalization of Wiccan worship as a whole religion, it explains in a very approachable and understandable way the ancient witchcraft, its influences, and methods. Murray starts to introduce the ideas of covens or thirteenth people circles that were into the witchcraft praising.

Gerald Gardner - Witchcraft Today: This is the very first book about the Wiccan religion itself. Of course, it supposes a mandatory reading for anyone interested in this worship. It mainly regards topics as the origins, history, and creation of this pagan current.

Ronald HuttonThe Triumph of the Moon: Hutton is a history teacher at the University of Bristol, England, and its specialization is about neopaganism history. This book seems to deny many fake theories written in other books by other authors. Nonetheless, this text helps to discover some interesting facts about Wiccan history, and the reputation of its author supports the book and ensures the information. This is another indispensable reading.

Raymond BucklandBuckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft: This is the definitive guide of rituals and spells. It is one of the classics of Wiccan literature and it is known as The Blue Book. Although it is a bit stiff and methodical about the practices and rites, this book explains the different methods and rituals in a very understandable and easy way.

Scott CunninghamMagical Herbalism: The Secret of the Wise: In this book, Cunningham regards a very complete list of plants, herbs, potions, brews, and oils that are used for cast spells and carry out some rituals. More than a literature piece, this is a consulting book, like an encyclopedia that can be read whenever you need to know what ingredients you should use when making some rite of cooking any potion. One of the best works of Scott Cunningham

Starhawk - The Spiral Dance: There is a very interesting controversy about this book because the way that Starhawk talks about the Wiccan culture is in a very feminist way. Thanks to this book, people today see the Wiccan worship as a feminist cult, but it is something that only you can judge from your own criteria after reading the book. Nevertheless, this is one of the main works about the Wiccan religion, and reading it is very important.

Doreen Valiente - Witchcraft for Tomorrow: Another important book in Wiccan literature. It is absolutely a classic. Valiente was one of the first priestesses started by Gardner. Her publications were very respected and influential during the first years of Wiccan popularization. The introduction of this book relates an old story about witchcraft in London whose veracity has been strongly questioned.

Margot Adler - Drawing Down the Moon: One of the most interesting books in Wiccan literature and researching works. This text regards the investigations made by Adler around the United States. It also includes some amazing pictures of covens, rituals, and the way of practicing the Wiccan traditions in the United States during the '70s.

Charles Godfrey Leland - the Gospel of the Witches: This book is also called Aradia, and describes the story of an old pagan cult that supposedly existed in the city of Toscana, in Italy. Leland also defends a story about the creation of the universe according to the Wiccan tradition. Nowadays this is a very mentioned text among all the Wiccan practitioners and is a very recommended reading if you want to understand the Wiccan culture.

Zsuzsanna Budapest - The Grandmother of Time: A Woman's Book of Celebrations, Spells, and Sacred Objects for Every Month of the Year: as it very extensive title says, this is a work dedicated to regarding a whole list of parties and celebrations to praise the goddesses of Wiccan worship and to honor the feminine side that each one of us has inside. Budapest was a feminist and Dianic person, and many of her work is related to the feminine part of the Wiccan religion.

Janet and Stewart Farrar - A Witches' Bible: The Complete Witches' Handbook: Again, the title explains almost everything about this book. It is consider as the main bible of witchcraft and occultism. It regards stories of Celtic mythology and other issues about the main Wiccan deities. Another mandatory reading to any single Wiccan parishioner.

These are the most important books that every Wiccan practitioner and witch must-have and must-read. Of course, there are some other interesting works about the Wiccan religion, such as The Golden Bough by James Frazer, but books like this are more dedicated to scientific affairs about this worship. Nevertheless, if you want to learn and understand more about this cult, reading these kinds of books may result very useful for you. In the mid-time, these books previously mentioned will be far enough to start understanding how the Wiccan religion works and how you can get inside.
