Etruscan Roman Remains

5 stars
Charles Godfrey Leland (Cosimo Classics, 2007)

Review:

A facsimile copy of the folklorist’s authentic 1892 masterwork revealing the beliefs, customs, deities, formulas, recipes, rites, and spells practiced and prized by 19th-century Witches in Tuscany. Written by the President of the Gypsy-Lore Society, this classic is the only book to list names of pesky daimons that plague lonely men and women, etc.

Aradia Gospel of the Witches

Aradia: or, Gospel of the Witches

5 stars
Charles Godfrey Leland (1890, repr. Lost Library)

Review:

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.
