Introduction on Wicca
Historical roots: Witchcraft is the ancient Pagan faith of Europe. This nature-oriented, agricultural,
magical religion had no central organisation, but was passed through families. During the
Christian era, particularly after the beginning of the systematic persecution of Witches in 1484,
almost all the public expression of the Craft disappeared. Surviving in hidden and isolated
places, Witchcraft has made a comeback in the twentieth century, partially spurred by the
repeal of the last British Witchcraft Laws in 1951.
Current World Leadership: No central authority. Many Witches have, however, affiliated with the American Council of Witches, formed in 1974, to provide a structure for co-operation and mutual sharing.
