BODY, MIND & SPIRIT / Witchcraft (see also RELIGION / Wicca)

Charles G. Leland's 19th-century book on Italian witchcraft and sorcery has become one of the primary source-texts for the witchcraft revival. Leland's Italian informant Maddalena reveals evocations, conjurations, spells, rites, and charms of operative magic from the peasants and witches of Romagna and the Tuscan Mountains. This edition's wonderfully informative foreword by Gemma Gary includes perspectives on the origins and contemporary influence of Leland's work.

Charles Godfrey Leland (1824-1903) was a journalist and folklorist who travelled widely. His interviews with an Italian woman known as Maddalena formed the basis for his book on folk magic.
