Celebrating the History of Wicca

stonehenge-ritualYou may have heard of Wicca: an ancient European religion of peace, predating Christianity by 3,000 years, honoring women as priestesses in harmony with the goddess of nature and her many faces. A misunderstood spiritualism whose devout and sincere followers have a long history of persecution.

Actually it was invented in the ’50s by Gerald Gardner who took ideas from an American folklorist, a British Egyptologist and Masonic rites then added the part about nude women running around the forest. Some of the ideas date as far back as the Victorian era.
