By Charles Leland

If Gerald Brosseau Gardner is the father of the religion that calls itself Wicca, then Charles Godfrey Leland is the grandfather of Witchcraft as a religion in the English?speaking world, and his small book, Aradia, is that religion?s birth-announcement.

This 1899 classic has become a foundational document of modern Wicca and id the first work in English?in which Witchcraft is portrayed as an underground old religion, surviving in secret from ancient Pagan times.
