While researching regional folklore in Tuscany during the late 19th Century, an American folklorist recieves a hand written document, the "Vangel", by a mysterious woman named Maddelena. Purportedly the last remains of an ancient Roman witchcraft religion, this forms the basis of "Aradia". Though the authenticity of "Aradia" has always been questioned, it has undoubtedly helped form the basis for neo-Pagan religion today.

First published in 1899, Charles Godfrey Leland's ARADIA, OR THE GOSPEL OF THE WITCHES is one of the earliest documentary testaments to the genuine survival of ancient European witchcraft and pagan goddess religion well into the 19th Century, and has become a seminal inspiration for the 20th Century resurrection/reconstruction of magickal beliefs in the modern practices of Wicca and NeoPaganism. This is a must-study volume for contemporary witches who seek to develop a Faith rooted in history and Tradition, rather than just the latest "Wicca 101" fad.

For brief explanation I may say that witch craft is known to its votaries as la vecchia religione, or the old religion, of which Diana is the Goddess, her daughter Aradia (or Herodias) the female Messiah, and that this little work sets forth how the latter was born, came down to earth, established witches and witchcraft, and then returned to heaven. With it are given the ceremonies and invocations or incantations to be addressed to Diana and Aradia, the exorcism of Cain, and the spells of the holy-stone, rue, and verbena, constituting, as the text declares, the regular church-service, so to speak, which is to be chanted or pronounced at the witch-meetings. There are also included the very curious incantations or benedictions of the honey, meal, and salt, or cakes of the witch-supper, which is curiously classical, and evidently a relic of the Roman Mysteries.

Excerpt: Aradia, or the Gospel of the Witches is a book composed by the American folklorist Charles Leland that was published in 1899. It contains what he believed was the religious text of a group of pagan witches in Tuscany, Italy that documented their beliefs and rituals, although various historians and folklorists have disputed the existence of such a group. In the 20th century, the book was very influential in the development of the Neopagan religion of Wicca. The text is a composite. Some of it is Leland's translation into English of an original Italian manuscript, the Vangelo (gospel). Leland reported receiving the manuscript from his primary informant on Italian witchcraft beliefs, a woman Leland referred to as "Maddalena" and whom he called his "witch informant" in Italy. The rest of the material comes from Leland's research on Italian folklore and traditions, including other related material from Maddalena. Leland had been informed of the Vangelo's existence in 1886, but it took Maddalena eleven years to provide him with a copy. After translating and editing the material, it took another two years for the book to be published. Its fifteen chapters...

This novel is fundamentally a love story about the romance of Eddie Edwards, a Catholic college professor, and Andrea Peregrino, a hereditary Witch. But it is also a vehicle for speculations about an alternative history of the beliefs underlying Western civilization. Was Jesus the Nazarene an enlightened Gnostic who knew he was empowered as a prophet like Moses? Was Mary called Magdalene his wife and true successor? Did Mary found communities in Alexandria and Provence based on Jesus' actual teachings? Were those teachings saved by the people called the Cathars? Were the Witches of Italy the true successors of Mary? Is magic a side effect of quantum fluctuations? Can we ever understand how oour own minds work? Those are the questions discussed by Eddie and Andrea as they flee for their lives from the forces that want to hide the newly recovered documents that give a very different history from what Eddie had believed.
