This first edition of Children of Cain was published at Autumnal Equinox , limited to two thousand copies ruby- stamped hardcover, one hundred sixty one deluxe copies hand-bound in heavy black linen, and sixty-six copies in full black goat. Fewer books have been written about pre- Gardnerian and non-Wiccan 'traditional witchcraft' and today more and more people are becoming interested in this older version.
To counter-balance a lack of genuine information and misinformation on the subject, this book presents an overview of the modern traditional witchcraft, its various publicly known traditions and the leading personalities who were responsible for bringing them into the light of day. What is a witch? According to one modern book on popular Wicca a witch is 'a person who perceives vividly the connection between all aspects of life.
Witches do not see spirit and matter as separate entities - they worship nature in stream and stone, plants and people. Witches are intensely aware of unseen natural energies [which they] make use mostly to help and heal.
Compare this with the following description of witches in Wales as represented in popular belief at the beginning of the 20th century: Welsh witches were divided into three main classes: 1 The black witches, male and female, who traded their souls in exchange for magical powers, using them for evil and cursing. Quick to take umbrage they were liberal with their use of curses 2 The white witches, who used their powers for the lifting of curses and healing. They sold love potions, foretold the future and were widely consulted by the gentry of the times as well as ordinary folk.
They could, when aroused to extreme anger, curse people. He could also cure diseases and lift curses and usually travelled through the country selling his magical powers. In addition to these three types of witches there were men who could exorcise spirits by means of the cross and the Trinity and passages from the New Testament.
They were classed as wise men and conjurors, but never referred to as witches, and were many times more successful at exorcising spirits then the clergy Pugh The differences between these two views of the witch divided only by a period of one hundred years is striking.
To a certain extent, of course, they reflect the popular beliefs about witches and witchcraft at either end of the 20th century. However, the Welsh example does provide a clear insight into the nature of the Craft as it was before the modern revival. It also helps to illustrate the major differences between modern neo-pagan Wicca and traditional and historical witchcraft. These differences will become apparent in the contents of this book.
From the 16th century onwards there is ample evidence from historical sources, folklore accounts, legal records and later newspaper reports of the activities of witches and so-called 'cunning folk. These magical practitioners operated widely in both rural and urban areas all over the British Isles until at least the beginning of the Second World War, and sometimes long afterwards. In the latter role the cunning folk sometimes assisted the local population as amateur witch-finders.
For Many oTthe charms and prayers they used were Roman Catholic in origin and predated the Reformation. They called upon Jesus, the Virgin Mary, the Trinity and the company of saints, rather than pagan gods and goddesses, psalms were often used for magical purposes by the old cunning folk and still are by some modern traditional witches.
However, some elements of the old paganism did survive in traditional witchcraft and historians such as Professor Carlo Ginzburg have claimed that the medieval witch cult and its practice of the Witches' Sabbath was based on a mixture of demonology, Christian heresy and pre-Christian shamanistic beliefs Modern traditional witches, such as members of the Cultus Sabbati, continue to follow beliefs and practices based on the medieval version of the Witches Sabbath.
The late Robert Cochrane, Magister or Master of the Clan of Tubal Cain, stated that traditional witchcraft was a surviving remnant of the ancient mystery religions, although he also affirmed that traditional witches were not 'pagans. Some Victorian folklorists regarded the popular stories about faeries as degraded memories of the pagan Old Gods. There are numerous examples of historical witches receiving initiation and magical training from the Good Folk and the Queen of Elfhame 'Elf Home' or Faeryland.
Some witches entered into 'faery marriages' with demon lovers and in return were granted the gift of the Second Sight, poetic inspiration, healing skills and a knowledge of herbal lore. This tradition of communion between witches and Faerie has also survived into modern forms of the Old Craft.
Today many traditional witches revere die faery king and queen of as the witch god and witch goddess.
It should be emphasised that the faeries, elves and goblins and the other elemental spirits recognised by traditional witches have nothing in common with the modern gossamer-winged New Age fantasy types. Books on ceremonial magic the stock-in-trade of the traditional witch or cunning person , fortune-telling and astrology were also available. These could be obtained from certain booksellers in London who specialised in the occult and pornography.
In the 19th century several magazines featuring astrology, divination and magic were published and found a wide readership among those interested in such subjects. There is also evidence of home-grown grimoires or 'Black Books' circulating among practitioners of folk magic. These manuals of practical occultism contained spells, incantations to call on angels and summon demons, astrological data and herbal recipes.
A famous example belonging to the 19th century Essex cunning man James Murrell. It surfaced in public a few years ago, having been owned by a local family for several generations and was offered to the Folklore Society. Cunning people, folk magicians and traditional witches also had access to famous medieval grimoires such as The Key of Solomon.
The modern traditions, groups and individuals described in the pages of this book claim to represent a continuity of practice and belief with the historical witchcraft described above. Many assert that their traditions pre-date the modern revival of the Craft. In some cases these claims are patently false. Familiar are the modern 'granny stories' from people who were initiated by their grandmothers and follow witch traditions with unbelievably ancient pedigrees.
Despite these fraudulent claims most of the publicly known traditions are genuine and can offer proof of their historical origins, although it is true to say that claims of a pedigree dating back before should be viewed with caution.
This makes it difficult to assess the authenticity of the historical claims put forward by traditions such as the Pickingill Craft and the Order of the Shield described in this book. In these two lineages there are 'legends' or stories that have allegedly been passed down from Anglo-Saxon times or before. However, as one modern practitioner of traditional witchcraft featured in this book, the late Andrew D.
Chumbley, has said: 'The essence of the [Craft] tradition is not a doctrine, but a community of spirit that survives throughout the ages. It is still developing and evolving.
In this book we will examine a wide range of Old Craft traditions and the talented people who inspired them. Sadly most of those featured are no longer with us in the physical world, but their contribution lives on in both the traditions they founded, which have survived their passing in one form or another, and in their continued influence from beyond the grave.
While they claim a historical and magical heritage from the old cunning folk and witches of earlier times, many of these modern practitioners have a more mystical and spiritual approach then their predecessors. They recognize that traditional witchcraft is an esoteric and gnostic mystery cult that has inherited elements of the teachings of the Ancient Wisdom. It has been claimed the Craft contains at its centre 'a spark of that mysterious dark angelic fire which first breathed life into the clay of this world' Huson, As such it offers an alternative and legitimate spiritual belief system that is still relevant in the 21st century and that fact is emphasised throughout the contents of this book.
I would like to thank Soror TA and Frater AA of the Cultus Sabbati for their support during the initial writing of this book, which was a difficult time for me personally. My sincere and grateful thanks also go to Daniel A. The websites about traditional witchcraft usually consist of miscellaneous and recycled i n f o r m a t i o n gleaned from old books on British folklore, history and mythology.
Many also seem to draw their material from neo-pagan and Wiccan sources and some claim that traditional witchcraft is a kind of pre-Christian nature or fertility religion. Because of this they cannot be considered to be genuinely 'traditional' or representative of Old Craft. Other websites belong to specific individuals, groups, organisations and traditions claiming, with varying degrees of authenticity, to represent various forms of traditional or hereditary family based witchcraft.
It can be argued that Gardnerian Wicca has 'traditional' roots because Gerald Gardner was initiated into a pre-existing coven in the New Forest area of southern England in As we shall see later in this book, it has been claimed that this group originally contained members connected with the 19th century Essex cunning man 'Old George' Pickingill. Recent research by Craft historian Philip Heselton suggests the New Forest Coven had some members who followed a family tradition of occultism and witchcraft Also over the years several well-known Gardnerian Wiccans have claimed contact with traditional witches.
She had also been a student of an Oxfordshire cunning an called Norman Gills who knew Cochrane. This was not unusual as at that time if you attended any neo-pagan, magical, druidic or Wiccan social event, conference or public ritual you were likely to meet the same people who belonged to all kinds of different groups and traditions.
Therefore it can be seen that historically, if not practically, the demarcation line between Wicca and traditional witchcraft was often blurred. What is real traditional witchcraft? One concise definition given by a modern practitioner says that it 'refers to a coterie of initiatory lineages of ritual magic, spellcraft and devotional mysticism' that operate as closed secret societies with formalised rites of entrance, an array of magical rituals, which are Christo-pagan or simply 'sorcerous' in their devotional character and have established hierarchies amongst [their] membership' Schulke A poetic description was given by Andrew D.
Its Ritual is the Sabbat of Dream-made flesh, below the feet of those who tread the crooked track of Elphame [the realm of Faerie]. Its Scripture is the Way of Wortcunning and Beast-changing, the treasury of lore re- membered by those who revere the Spirits; it is the gramayre of ear-whispered knowledge, beloved of those who hold the secrets of the Dead and entrusted to they who look ever onward If any ask about the Traditional Craft, their answer lies in its native land; the Circle of the Arte of Artes.
Another traditional witch, who used to run a covine in Windsor in the s, described it as follows: 'One of the most compelling experiences of the genuine mystery faith [of witchcraft] is that which awakens the dream of timeless reality — it invokes the old test of infinity or rebirth.
We worship the Gods of wisdom, peace and natural power, which transcend all humanity. In her book, Dr Murray put forward her controversial theory that the descriptions of the practices found in accounts of the witch-trials actually represented the beliefs andritualsof an organised pan-European fertility cult surviving from prehistoric times. She claimed that the stories of witches worshipping the Devil were not evidence of a demonic manifestation, as the witch-hunters claimed, but obeisance given to the male chief witch of a coven dressed up in an animal mask and skins to represent a pagan horned god.
In this respect she was partly right. However Dr Murray also believed that medieval witchcraft was the surviving remnant of a pre-Christian cult that had been demonised by the Church and persecuted as a heresy.
She claimed it existed as an organised universal belief system all over Europe. Although modern academics working in the field of witchcraft history no longer accept Dr Murray's theories, her ideas heavily influenced modern Wicca and they still have their devoted followers among some neo-pagan witches.
The generic term 'Traditional Craft' or 'Old Craft' is also used today to refer to those witches, mostly following hereditary or family traditions, that claim to represent a survival of the historical witchcraft practised during the days of the Persecution.
