This is the only ethnography of a living community of witches in the United States. Ravenwood, based near Atlanta, is one of the largest American covens and has supported and encouraged this research through to publication. Of unprecedented importance in clearing the name of witchcraft, the leader of the coven is a civil rights activist, still dedicated in her wiser years to the individual's right to freedom of religion. A must read in women's studies, shamanism, comparative religion and American studies.

Barbara Allen Lyrics. Twas in the merry month of May When green buds all were swelling Sweet William on his death bed lay For love of Barbara Allen. He sent his servant to the town To the place where she was dwelling Saying you must come, to my master dear If your name be Barbara Allen. So slowly, slowly she got up And slowly she drew nigh him And the only words to him did say Young man I think you're dying.

Talk about Living Witchcraft

There was everything you would hope to read about a religous group present in this book: Theology, cosmology, hierarchy, politics, and demographics. It was told from the perspective of students who wished to understand instead of hateful people who wanted to diss. On the other hand, that also means they were not serving as an advertising agency for the group. There are times when they try to use comparisons which I feel do not work. There are also moments in the book where they explain something in a way that I do not feel they grasped what was being taugh (i.e. if I were to tell you that water is sacred in cleansing and you said that I told you water is for cleaning the pipes).

As a layperson I appreciated the accessible writing style of this book. As a Pagan, I appreciated the sensitivity and respect with which the subject matter was treated.

The description of how the coven culture has evolved over time, the way adversity strengthened the founder's convictions, and the founder's description of the relationship and distinctions between Trad Wicca and eco-feminism were of particular interest to me. There is also a good description of the seminary.

I would recommend this book to any theologian, (or thealogian) minister, chaplain, interested anthropologist or sociologist, or initiated Wiccan clergy/teacher.

More than ten years have passed since this book was written. I would love to see the topic revisited. There have been some change within the Wiccan movement, in particular more Wiccans believe that their religion is a new religion informed by Western Mysticism and ancient Paganism, rather than an ancient religion passed down in secret. I also understand that there are new leaders in the Ravenwood coven. I would love to see the same authors address the way the coven has changed and stayed the same since this book was written.
