Aradia: The Gospel of the Witches
By Charles G. Leland

Aradia is one of the key sources of the Witchcraft revival, and yet, until now, it has been practically unobtainable.

Leland's passport to the shadowy world of the Italian witches - an immeasurably ancient cult tradition whose very existence, let alone its richness and extent, was unsuspected by the majority of respectable Italians - was his friendship from 1886 onwards with Maddalena, a Florentine fortune-teller and hereditary witch from the Romagna Tuscana.

It was from Maddalena that he obtained the whole of the material of Aradia, and he describes how she gave it to him in the Preface and Appendix to this work; but they present (doubtless unintentionally) too easy a picture of the years of patience and effort involved for Leland himself. One has the feeling that it was only after ten years of friendship had established Leland's sincerity and good faith, that Maddalena finally felt justified in entrusting to him the Vangelo or 'Gospel' here published.

Here is the completely unabridged gospel for the self-development of the witch and the coven.
