Here are some resources (links, books, articles, blogs, etc) about Traditional witchcraft that I’ve enjoyed quite a bit. All books and websites I have read and gone through….
Mastering Witchcraft by Paul Huson was published in 1970 before the New Age phase really hit the market.
It provides a comprehensive overview of the authentic, historical Witchcraft tradition.
Amazing read, especially for when it comes to otherworldy practices. Unfortunately, the text does suffer from the misogamy of the time, but a lot of updated translations do their best to omit this from the text.
While not exactly the most reliable source for history with some of the claims and content in great question, it most certainly is an enjoyable read. It has had a lot of influence on modern Neo Pagan practices.
A book heavily discussed over. Murray’s theories have been discredited for a very long time; however as a friend put it, her resources are genuine and an absolute must read.
Now this book, it is one of my most favorites. Definitely a big influence on my practice. It has a ton of ancient tales, charms, and bits of witchcraft within its pages.
I haven’t dived too deeply into these volumes, but Cornwall is known for its witchcraft.
Good Book. Talks about historical witchcraft and the practices of supposed witches during the witch craze in Europe. Very detailed and dirty witchcraft
This gives a ton of information and covers a lot of English magic.
These two books by Valerie Worth (Crone’s book of Magical words; Crone’s Book of Charms and Spells) are great. They are less focused on an academic view, and more focused on the practice aspect of witchcraft.
