With or without a k on the end! I see lots of books on witchcraft (the one Carla recently did a thread on does sound interesting!), most I can trace back to Gerald Gardner or the Golden Dawn in general, no matter what they say. Most that say NOT Wicca, are, which wouldn't be a problem if that was the direction I wished to go. Few, if any, I have found can be traced back to anything really specific to the 1700's or earlier re witchcraft, or wise women, although I'm sure they must be out there. Not looking for a dark grimoire or anything, just would love to see information from much earlier than is usually found re oils, rituals, nature. So much claims a direct link to centuries long past, but when I do the research to find the source, it usually is based on Gerald Gardner or some aspect of the Golden Dawn. Anyone find any great old books as reference regarding Wise Women? I look at sources and am getting where I think it's just better to stay with my own rituals I form from scratch. Would be interesting to see some realllly old books though!
