Turning off the personalised advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive. When I think of a traditional Grimoire or Book of Shadows, I think of beautiful illustrations alongside thorough information; and that is what I thought of when I created Magick. This book analyzes the gendered transformation of magical figures occurring in Arthurian romance in England from the twelfth to the sixteenth centuries.

Not only is it a matter of empirical fact that there are BIPOC individuals who identify as Witches and who understand their ancestral traditions as forms of Witchcraft religions, but the shift is also political. Historical precedent, continuity, and legitimation are ongoing cosmological negotiations within Pagan communities. She has been conducting fieldwork with Witches and other progressive religious movements for 20 years.but this was not a book that would help you much if you want something really serious about medieval witchcraft. It is engagingly written, even when dealing with difficult concepts, and the linking of medieval with modern representations of magic is fascinating, especially because many students are first attracted to studying magic because of modern TV shows or novels .

A predominantly white, Western movement, contemporary Paganism is a product of, a backlash against, and a popular audience for, anthropological ideas about magic.These religions have had to fight for legitimacy and to resist racist projections of primitivism as well as cultural appropriation by white spiritual seekers.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. In the earlier texts, magic is predominantly a masculine pursuit, garnering its user prestige and power, but in the later texts, magic becomes a primarily feminine activity, one that marks its user as wicked and heretical. Overall, this is a stimulating and accessible contribution to a growing field, and has much to interest historians of medieval and early modern magic.These 4 or 5-star reviews represent the opinions of the individuals who posted them and do not reflect the views of Etsy.
