The Wiccan Mysteries : Ancient Origins & Teachings / by Raven Grimassi

The author, Raven Grimassi: "An alternative view of the Old Religion I was greatly honored in 1998 to have the Wiccan Mysteries receive two awards by the Coalition of Visionary Retailers at the New Age Convention in Denver. Here the book received "Best Spirituality Book" and "Book of the Year". My purpose in writing the Wiccan Mysteries was to present various aspects of ancient pre-Christian religion that also appear in modern Wiccan beliefs and practices. The book also traces various common elements of the ancient mystery religions of Egypt, Greece and Rome, and their influence throughout Europe. It is my personal belief that the ancient Mystery Cults of Old Europe influenced pre-Christian religion throughout continental Europe and much of the British Isles. Wicca, whether one considers it ancient or entirely modern, houses the essential elements of the ancient Mystery Tradition itself. Historical examples of such Mystery Traditions include the cult of Dionysos in ancient Greece, the rites of Eleusis centered around Demeter and Persephone, the cult of Mithras and many others. The Mystery Tradition itself focuses largely on spiritual transformation and employs metaphorical relationships between the human experience and planting, harvesting, and the brewing of grain. In the Wiccan Mysteries book, I have drawn largely upon the works of Joseph Campbell, Carlo Ginzburg, and Marija Gimbutas for the modern interpretation of mythology, paganism, and human spirituality. As a balance the book also draws upon the writings of ancient historians such as Hesiod, Homer, Diodorus, Polybius, Strabo and others. Added to this is my own experience as a practitioner of the Old Religion for over 25 years. Unfortunately some reviewers have elected to focus on my book as a presentation of questionable history. In doing so they have missed what is most important in the work itself: the Wiccan Mysteries is a work focusing on the spirituality of modern Wicca, as well as an overview of its beliefs and practices. Wiccan Mysteries also contains separate chapters on Women's Mysteries and Men's Mysteries from ancient to modern times. Essentially the Wiccan Mysteries is a book about ancient wisdom and how modern Wicca employs it as a viable and vital tool for personal spiritual evolution in modern times."

Modern rites of Passage: Witchcraft Today; Book 2 / edited by Chas S. Clifton

 

This book is about the ritual glue that binds Pagan culture. In contrast, much writing on modern Paganism, whether it be Witchcraft or some other form, seems to assume that the reader is a young, single adult--"a seeker." At most, the reader is seen as a member of a coven or other group made up of adults. This collection of writings, however, takes a wider view with the long-term goal of presenting a living Pagan culture. Selector's Note: My soul mate and I used the Handfasting ritual in this book to assist us in writing our own.
