Book summary

After years of trying Charles Leland met a practicing Italian witch by the name of Maddelena, who transmitted to him the teachings of Italian witchcraft. The words (stories) have become Aradia or the Gospel of the Witches. This manuscript, reportedly handed down in an oral tradition, was later translated and published in the late 1800's. While it is true that Maddelena's involvement with Leland cannot be proven, the fact remains that even with an uncertain origin, Aradia is one of the most important manuscripts available to the Pagan community. It most definitely presents such a powerful message that even today its words are found repeatedly in various literatures. It is the foundation for one of the most powerful and well-known documents in modern Pagan lore, The Charge of the Goddess. With an introduction and new material by A. J. Drew, this is Aradia as never presented before. [via]
