Athlone History of Witchcraft and Magic in Europe: The 20th C
The sixth and final (as of yet…) book in this excellent series. As always, it is a compilation of articles, this one including:
Modern Pagan Witchcraft (Hutton – being an updated version of information from Triumph of the Moon)
Satanism and Satanic Mythology (la Fontaine) – looks at the history, the groups, and the accusations
The witch, her victim… (de Blecourt – University of Warwick among other places!). History and discussion.
A quote from teh intorduction, "Witchcraft and magic, then, are marked both by contempraneity and by timelessness"....
A good book, worth reading if not possessing (as with all of the series, it is expensive). It needs to be supplemented by other works and original documents, but still worthwhile and important.
Level: one and a bit (it assumes some background knowledge).
