Wicca isn’t the same thing as the kind of witchcraft you read about in most of the history books, but the histories of the two are intertwined. Witchcraft, in some form or another, has probably been around as long as people have been. Certainly it’s mentioned in classical literature, like in the stories of Medea and Circe, and of course in documents of the early Christian Church. One of the earliest and most famous church documents about witchcraft is the Canon Episcopi, which had a profound and long-lasting impact on the philosophy of Christians toward witchcraft and paganism.
Second, many people today still believe that Satanic witchcraft and paganism are the same thing. In 1921, Dr. Margaret Murray wrote The Witch-Cult in Western Europe, in which she hypothesized that medieval witchcraft was in fact not a Christian heresy, but an organized pagan fertility cult that had survived, reasonably intact, through the Middle Ages. Her theory had great romantic appeal, but she had no proof. Her book implied that medieval witches were much more organized than they could possibly have been without phones, cars, the Internet, or even a common language (the vernacular of commoners was often different than that of nobles), and that there was more consistency between “covens” of witches than historians had previously believed.
There is no central church of Wicca, and no Wiccan Bible, Torah, or Koran to outline the beliefs, rules, and teachings of the religion. You learn Wicca by living it. Your experience tells you what is true, what works for you, and what you believe. We walk this path somewhat like scientists, testing things out and shifting our beliefs according to the outcomes. Once you have experienced something, you “own” it. It is part of you. You understand it at a level that you couldn’t by just reading about it.
