Authentic 19th-century Stregheria (Italian Witchcraft) liturgy, mythos, spells, and traditions descended from a medieval-era, roaming female Witch named Aradia, who taught the oppressed how to use magic to protect themselves from their rich overlords. Leland, a British folklore researcher, acquired the information in this book from a Strega known as Maddalena. In the 20th century, Doreen Valiente adapted and popularized the “Charge of the Goddess” from this book.
