Description

"An absolute must for anyone interested in the development of paganism in the modern world. I cannot recommend this book enough."--Janet Farrar, coauthor of A Witches' Bible

"At last, we have a history of British Paganism written from the inside, by somebody who not only has a good knowledge of the sources, but explicitly understands how Pagans and magicians think."--Ronald Hutton, author of The Triumph of the Moon and The Witch

What do we mean by "paganism"--druids, witches, and occult rituals? Healing charms and forbidden knowledge? Miracles of Our Own Making is a historical overview of pagan magic in the British Isles, from the ancient peoples of Britain to the rich and cosmopolitan landscape of contemporary paganism. Exploring the beliefs of the druids, Anglo-Saxons, and Vikings, as well as Elizabethan Court alchemy and witch trials, we encounter grimoires, ceremonial magic, and the Romantic revival of arcane deities. The influential and well-known--the Golden Dawn, Wicca, and figures such as Aleister Crowley--are considered alongside the everyday "cunning folk" who formed the magical fabric of previous centuries. Ranging widely across literature, art, science, and beyond, Liz Williams debunks many of the prevailing myths surrounding magical practice, past and present, while offering a rigorously researched and highly accessible account of what it means to be a pagan today.
